A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
The Art Institute of Chicago and The Magnificent Mile are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Atwater Park & Beach and Cowles Bog. Step out of Chicago with an excursion to Hawthorn Hollow - Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum in Kenosha--about 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, pause for some photo ops at Cloud Gate, take in panoramic vistas at Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, and get a new perspective on nature at Field Museum.

For reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Chicago itinerary maker tool .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
