A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Step off the beaten path and head to Silver Beach County Park and Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area. Get a sense of the local culture at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Utica (Starved Rock State Park, Matthiessen State Park, & more), South Bend (University of Notre Dame, Studebaker National Museum, & more) and Valparaiso (Chapel of the Resurrection & The Course at Aberdeen). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Grand Mere State Park, take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, tour the pleasant surroundings at Geneva Lake Shore Path, and play a few rounds at Hawks View Golf Club.

To see where to stay, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Chicago trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In May, daytime highs in Chicago are 26°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
