A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Step out of the city life by going to Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area and Cowles Bog. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Art Institute of Chicago and Millennium Park. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Saint Joseph (Whirlpool Compass Fountain, Silver Beach County Park, & more), Wheeler Park (in Geneva) and Starved Rock State Park (in Utica). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve, learn about winemaking at Hickory Creek Winery, and don't miss a visit to Cloud Gate.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
