A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Popular historic sites such as Millennium Park and Pleasant Home are in your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Lincoln Park Zoo and Oak Savannah Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Lake County Forest Preserves (in Libertyville), Cowles Bog (in Chesterton) and Hawthorn Hollow - Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum (in Kenosha). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fourth Presbyterian Church, get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, and enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago trip itinerary maker .

In May, daytime highs in Chicago are 71°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
