A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Escape the urban bustle at Little Red Schoolhouse and Whihala Beach Co Park. The Magnificent Mile and Museum of Science and Industry are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen), River Trail Nature Center (in Northbrook) and Saint Joseph (Silver Beach County Park & Lions Park Beach). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, look for all kinds of wild species at Cowles Bog, tour the pleasant surroundings at Simmons Island Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Ohio Street Beach.
