A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Art Institute of Chicago and Cantigny Park. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Millennium Park and The Field Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Weko Park (in Bridgman), Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph) and Bender Park Waterfront (in Oak Creek). There's much more to do: engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, enjoy the sand and surf at Rosewood Beach, stroll through Whihala Beach, and admire all the interesting features of Wrigley Field.

To see photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Chicago vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in June, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
