A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Art Institute of Chicago and Swedish American Museum. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Magnificent Mile and The Field Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Springbrook Nature Center (in Itasca). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Lincoln Park Zoo, try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond, admire the landmark architecture of Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, and explore and take pictures at Millennium Park.
