A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Attractions like Museum of Science and Industry and Navy Pier make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Saint Joseph (Silver Beach Carousel, Whirlpool Compass Fountain, & more), Willow Springs (Centennial Bike Trail & Little Red Schoolhouse) and Chesterton (Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve & Cowles Bog). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, engage your brain at Field Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo.
