A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The Magnificent Mile and Museum of Science and Industry. Step out of the city life by going to Grand Mere State Park and Lincoln Park Zoo. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Three Oaks Recreation Area (in Crystal Lake), Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph) and Willow Crest Golf Club (in Oak Brook). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond, examine the collection at The Field Museum, and explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago.
