A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
We've included these beaches for you: Silver Beach County Park and Grand Mere State Park. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kayaking & Canoeing and Baha'i House of Worship. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Cantigny Park (in Wheaton), Riverwalk Lot (in Naperville) and Utica (Matthiessen State Park & Starved Rock State Park). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, admire the majestic nature at Indiana Dunes State Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Holy Name Cathedral, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

For photos, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Chicago online trip itinerary planner .

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. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in July, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
