A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Visiting Grand Mere State Park and Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Basilica of the Sacred Heart and Sarett Nature Center. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Utica (Matthiessen State Park, Starved Rock State Park, & more), South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes, Studebaker National Museum, & more) and Riverwalk Lot (in Naperville). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 1st (Wed) at Six Flags Great America. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Silver Beach County Park, relax in the rural setting at Fair Oaks Farms, admire the natural beauty at Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve, and look for all kinds of wild species at Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie.

To see where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Chicago online trip builder .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
