    On a 40-degree Saturday morning in November, out-of-town tourists from Tennessee to Indiana converged on downtown Chicago to check out attractions, which include the city’s architectural landmarks and sweeping skyline. Generally, the best times to visit Chicago are April through May and between September and October when the weather is warmer, according to travel and leisure experts.

The couple was visiting from Nashville to see famous landmarks in Chicago over the weekend. “There’s just not a proper way to prepare for the weather in Chicago,” said Shelby, but Howard said Chicago’s skyline view makes the cold weather a little more tolerable.
