Windy City

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Step out of the city life by going to Lakefront Trail and Lake Michigan. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chicago Riverwalk and Chicago River. Venture out of the city with trips to Cantigny Park (in Wheaton), Saint Joseph (Silver Beach County Park & Silver Beach Carousel) and Riverwalk Lot (in Naperville). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Baha'i House of Worship, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Holy Name Cathedral, examine the collection at Oriental Institute Museum, and get in on the family fun at Fox in a Box Chicago.
