A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum and Silver Beach County Park. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Cantigny Park and Lincoln Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: South Bend (Basilica of the Sacred Heart & Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Chicago Riverwalk, stroll around Millennium Park, explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, and steep yourself in history at Ernest Hemingway Birthplace.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In July in Chicago, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
