A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Appreciate the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry. Step out of the city life by going to Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm and Lincoln Park Zoo. When in Chicago, make a side trip to see Little Red Schoolhouse in Willow Springs, approximately 34 minutes away. The adventure continues: get a taste of the local shopping with The Magnificent Mile, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Michigan, see the interesting displays at The Field Museum, and try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond.
