A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
For shopping fun, head to The Magnificent Mile or Chicago Cultural Center. Your inner history buff will appreciate Millennium Park and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes & Basilica of the Sacred Heart), St. Julian Winery-Union Pier (in Union Pier) and MB Financial Park at Rosemont (in Rosemont). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Whiskey Acres Distilling Co., and try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond.
