A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Discovery Center Museum and St. Julian Winery-Union Pier. Step off the beaten path and head to Starved Rock State Park and Historic Auto Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Hegeler Carus Mansion (in LaSalle), Hickory Creek Winery (in Buchanan) and Rockford (Midway Village & Museum Center & Burpee Museum of Natural History). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, admire the landmark architecture of Chicago Cultural Center, see the interesting displays at Hesston Steam Museum, and contemplate the long history of Gaylord Building Historic Site.

Plan my trip to Chicago with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. February in Chicago sees daily highs of 2°C and lows of -7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
