Windy City

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry. There's still lots to do: stroll around Millennium Park, get a new perspective on nature at Field Museum, admire the local landmark of Buckingham Fountain, and take in panoramic vistas at 360 Chicago Observation Deck.

Discover how to plan a Chicago trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.

The Prairie State
The most populous state in the country's Midwest region, Illinois features a diverse landscape that includes both the enormous urban sprawl of Chicago and flat central plains, devoted almost entirely to farmland. With a great selection of things to do, Chicago is the state's centerpiece, featuring world-famous architecture and renowned museums. Farther away from this giant urban center, you can explore historical landmarks dedicated to local heroes Abraham Lincoln and Ernest Hemingway. The state also includes a prehistoric Native American site, one of only 20 World Heritage Sites in the United States, a unique feature well-worth adding to your itinerary.
