They have similar temperature to Canada's in the winter. They start getting cold around mid to late fall. In the late spring they have more mild to hot temperatures all the way through to the summer.

Characteristic Dishes

A characteristic dish would probably be Chicago-Style pizza.

It is a pizza that is deep-dish (meaning that it is cooked in a dish that is unlike a pie pan or any other kind of pan, it is specifically made for a deep dish pizza.

It also has lots of chunky sauce and lots of cheese to get its great taste.
