Chicago — 15 nights

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.

There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, learn more about the world around you at Field Museum, test your problem-solving skills at Fox in a Box Chicago, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo.

The Prairie State
The most populous state in the country's Midwest region, Illinois features a diverse landscape that includes both the enormous urban sprawl of Chicago and flat central plains, devoted almost entirely to farmland. With a great selection of things to do, Chicago is the state's centerpiece, featuring world-famous architecture and renowned museums. Farther away from this giant urban center, you can explore historical landmarks dedicated to local heroes Abraham Lincoln and Ernest Hemingway. The state also includes a prehistoric Native American site, one of only 20 World Heritage Sites in the United States, a unique feature well-worth adding to your itinerary.
