A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Let the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry capture your imagination. Get some cultural insight at Millennium Park and The Field Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes & Basilica of the Sacred Heart), Cantigny Park (in Wheaton) and Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center (in Skokie). There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Ernest Hemingway Birthplace, get to know the resident critters at Lincoln Park Zoo, try out the rides at Navy Pier, and enjoy breathtaking views from 360 Chicago Observation Deck.

For photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Chicago road trip planning tool .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
