A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph), Grand Mere State Park (in Stevensville) and River Trail Nature Center (in Northbrook). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 6th (Wed) at Six Flags Great America. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago, take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, and take in panoramic vistas at Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, use the Chicago holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
