A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll get in some beach time at Silver Beach County Park and Ohio Street Beach. Get some historical perspective at Millennium Park and Fourth Presbyterian Church. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Whihala Beach Co Park (in Whiting), Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen) and Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, admire all the interesting features of Wrigley Field, trek along Cowles Bog, and look for all kinds of wild species at Red Oak Nature Center.

For ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Chicago travel itinerary planner .

In September in Chicago, expect temperatures between 78°F during the day and 61°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
