A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore and learn at International Wall Dog Mural and Sign Art Museum and Amboy Depot Museum. Get some historical perspective at John Deere Historic Site and Weber House and Garden. Venture out of the city with trips to LaPorte (La Porte County Historical Society Museum & Hesston Steam Museum), Utica (August Hill Winery & Illinois Sparkling Co. Tasting Room & Starved Rock State Park) and Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, examine the collection at Museum of the Gilding Arts, trek along Geneva Lake Shore Path, and learn about all things military at Livingston County War Museum.
