A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Grand Mere State Park and Silver Beach County Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Saint Joseph (Whirlpool Compass Fountain & Silver Beach Carousel), Chapel of the Resurrection (in Valparaiso) and Sarett Nature Center (in Benton Harbor). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 17th (Tue) at Six Flags Great America. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area, explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, take in nature's colorful creations at Anderson Japanese Gardens, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park.

July in Chicago sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
