A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Let the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and Ernest Hemingway Birthplace capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Lincoln Park Zoo and Cowles Bog. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve (in Chesterton). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, glide through natural beauty at Veteran Acres Park, and take a peaceful walk through Deer Grove Forest Preserve.
