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: Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen), Chicago Botanic Garden (in Glencoe) and Willow Crest Golf Club (in Oak Brook). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, and see the interesting displays at The Field Museum.
