A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Museum of Science and Industry and Field Museum. Get in touch with nature at Cowles Bog and Lakefront Trail. Take a break from Chicago with a short trip to Rosewood Beach in Highland Park, about 38 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, walk around Millennium Park, appreciate the history behind Cloud Gate, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Shedd Aquarium.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
