A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
The Magnificent Mile and Museum of Science and Industry are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visiting Lincoln Park Zoo and Little Red Schoolhouse will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph) and Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, steep yourself in history at Ernest Hemingway Birthplace, try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond, and meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium.

To see ratings, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Chicago visit planning website .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in May, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
