A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get in touch with nature at Silver Beach County Park and Starved Rock State Park. The Magnificent Mile and The Field Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to River Trail Nature Center (in Northbrook), Grand Mere State Park (in Stevensville) and Three Oaks Recreation Area (in Crystal Lake). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, take in panoramic vistas at Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond, and get curious at Museum of Science and Industry.

To find where to stay, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Chicago online holiday planner .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
