A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Whihala Beach and Museum of Science and Industry. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Art Institute of Chicago and Cantigny Park. There's still lots to do: explore the landscape on two wheels at Lakefront Trail, get your game on at The Escape Game Chicago, explore the activities along Lake Michigan, and add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour.

To see maps, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Chicago trip planning app .

In August in Chicago, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 67°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
