A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Starved Rock State Park and Chicago Riverwalk. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Anderson Japanese Gardens (in Rockford), August Hill Winery & Illinois Sparkling Co. Tasting Room (in Utica) and Rockford Speedway (in Loves Park). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and design of University of Notre Dame, kick back and relax at Silver Beach County Park, learn the secrets of beer at a beer tour and tasting, and don't miss a visit to Buckingham Fountain.
