A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Morton Arboretum (in Lisle), South Bend (Basilica of the Sacred Heart & University of Notre Dame) and Washington Park Zoo (in Michigan City). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, examine the collection at The Field Museum, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, and engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Chicago day trip website .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 50°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
