A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Family-friendly places like Museum of Science and Industry and Shedd Aquarium will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Gizmo's Fun Factory (in Orland Park) and Kishwauketoe Conservancy (in Williams Bay). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, take in the waterfront at Navy Pier, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, and take in panoramic vistas at 360 Chicago Observation Deck.
