Chicago, Illinois

Chicago is the center of the Midwest, offering a stunning cityscape, tons of events and activities, and a rich history. As home to the recent World Series Champions, the city is also gaining a reputation as one of the most athletic places around. Here at Sierra Mazda, we're happy to serve the Chicago area. Read on to learn more about the Windy City, including a brief history and local activities.


The Windy City is the third-largest city in the US, with over 2.7 million residents. It was officially incorporated in 1837, though it served as a port for several years before. Chicago gained prominence as an international hub in finance, commerce, and industry, and it is frequently credited as the transportation and rail center that allowed for the expansion of America. The city even has a distinct cultural history, with arts, novels, film, theater, jazz, and more.


Chicago has frequently been named the "Best Sports City" by Sporting News, and it is home to teams such as the Cubs, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Bulls. Wrigley Field is considered a national landmark by many, and it gained even more prominence since the Cubs took the World Series in 2016-the first time since 1908.

Arts and Culture

For those looking for sophistication, look no further. Chicago has a distinct cityscape largely due to reconstruction after the infamous fire, and some of the iconic buildings include the Willis Tower (also called the Sears Tower), the Chicago Board of Trade Building, Fine Arts Building, and the Lake Shore Drive Apartments (designed by Mies van der Rohe). The Art Institute of Chicago is well worth a visit, as it is the second-largest museum in the US. It is home to Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte, Picasso's The Old Guitarist, and Grant Wood's American Gothic, among other prominent paintings.

These are just some of the great things about Chicago. You can stop by a baseball game at Wrigley Field, admire the architecture, of get lost in a painting at the Art Institute. In the area? Stop by Sierra Mazda to test drive a new or used vehicle today.
