A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Sri Venkateswara Swami Temple (in Aurora), Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen) and Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, examine the collection at The Field Museum, stroll through Lincoln Park Zoo, and take a leisurely stroll along Navy Pier.

To see ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Chicago driving holiday 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. In August, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
