Welcome Bienvenidos marhaba Bienvenue Huan Yin habaBenvenuto Witajcie Dobro Pozhalovat' Mabuhay Khush Amaadiid Khosh aamadid Chaire Yo koso Letter From the Publisher loha mai Bem-vindo Baruch Haba Enjoy your stay Some say the weather in Chicago is unpredictable, but I say the constant change keeps Chicagoans on their feet and gives them life. In our vast city where everything changes on a daily basis, you are guaranteed to have your mind and body stimulated all year round.

Sharif Nassr

Chicago is well known for many reasons. First and foremost it boasts one of the world’s most gorgeous skylines thanks in part to an outstanding architectural legacy. Home to some of the finest dining options in the country, shopping experiences, indoor and outdoor entertainment venues, culture, and attractions, your visit to Chicago will be a memorable one every time.

We’ve created the Lavish Passport to help you get through the ‘customs’ of the city, taking you where you want to be fast, and helping you get what you need even faster. So welcome to Chicago, we are honored to provide you “a passport to our city”... Sharif Nassr, President | group publisher
