A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Museum-lovers will get to explore The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry. Escape the urban bustle at Silver Beach County Park and Starved Rock State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Saint Joseph (Whirlpool Compass Fountain, Lions Park Beach, & more), Kernel's Gourmet Popcorn & More (in Geneva) and The Little Popcorn Store (in Wheaton). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 18th (Tue) at Six Flags Great America. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, stroll through Simmons Island Beach, immerse yourself in nature at Matthiessen State Park, and get some fabulous bargains at Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets.

To see other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Chicago road trip planner .

In June, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 63°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
