A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Shedd Aquarium. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Loop and Volo Bog State Natural Area. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Willowbrook Wildlife Center (in Glen Ellyn) and Edward L. Ryerson Conservation Area (in Riverwoods). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Lincoln Park, make a trip to Buckingham Fountain, admire the striking features of Tribune Tower, and admire the natural beauty at Lincoln Park Conservatory.

To see reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Chicago trip itinerary maker site .

In September, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 78°F, while at night they dip to 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
