A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets and Silver Beach County Park. Escape the urban bustle at Starved Rock State Park and Grand Mere State Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Vineyards Gourmet (in Coloma), Tom's Farm Market and Greenhouse (in Huntley) and Saint Joseph (The Olive Cart, FuzzyButz Pet Bakery, & more). There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at South Bend Farmer's Market, get some fabulous bargains at Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Manteno Antique Mall, and buy something for everyone on your list at CherryVale Mall.

To find ratings, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Chicago route planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In August in Chicago, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
