A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore hidden gems such as Buckingham Fountain and Starved Rock State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph), Geneva Lake Shore Path (in Lake Geneva) and Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, take a stroll through The Loop, get to know the fascinating history of Chicago Riverwalk, and grab your bike and head to Lakefront Trail.

To see traveler tips, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, read our Chicago trip planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 65°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
