A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Grand Mere State Park and Silver Beach County Park. Appreciate the collections at Discovery Center Museum and Historic Auto Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Saint Joseph (St. Joseph Lighthouses, Box Factory For the Arts, & more), Hegeler Carus Mansion (in LaSalle) and Utica (Matthiessen State Park & Starved Rock State Park). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 7th (Tue) at Six Flags Great America. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, get to know the fascinating history of Riverwalk Lot, admire the landmark architecture of Chicago Cultural Center, and identify plant and animal life at Fernwood Botanical Garden and Nature Preserve.

To find more things to do, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, read Chicago trip site .

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 July, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
