A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore and learn at The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago.

Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Starved Rock State Park (in Utica), Michigan City (Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets & STATELINE BLUEBERRIES) and South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes, University of Notre Dame, & more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, see the interesting displays at The Field Museum, browse the different shops at University Park Mall, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Chicago Riverwalk.
