A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
When in Chicago, make a side trip to see Basilica of the Sacred Heart in South Bend, approximately 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, take a leisurely stroll along Navy Pier, examine the collection at The Field Museum, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park.

For where to stay and tourist information, you can read our Chicago trip planning tool .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
