A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Starved Rock State Park and The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Cedar Creek Ranch (in Cedar Point), Matthiessen State Park (in Utica) and South Bend (Studebaker National Museum, Basilica of the Sacred Heart, & more). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Shedd Aquarium, and take in nature's colorful creations at Anderson Japanese Gardens.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 45°F, and evening lows to 30°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
