A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum and Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Volo Auto Museum and Studebaker National Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Route 66 Shield Mural (in Pontiac), Riverwalk Lot (in Naperville) and Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Silver Beach County Park, explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, admire all the interesting features of Lincoln Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Grand Mere State Park.
