Chicago

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Loop and Geneva Lake Shore Path. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph), Milwaukee (Lakefront Brewery, Pabst Mansion, & more) and Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area (in Medaryville). The adventure continues: sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, explore the activities along Chicago River, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Lakefront Trail.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Chicago vacation planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In October in Chicago, expect temperatures between 21°C during the day and 11°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
