A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Millennium Park and Fourth Presbyterian Church. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Magnificent Mile and Marquette Building. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Prairie Wolf Slough (in Highland Park), Fishing Charters & Tours (in Saint Joseph) and Deer Grove Forest Preserve (in Palatine). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Lincoln Park Zoo, trek along Little Red Schoolhouse, explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, and pause for some photo ops at Cloud Gate.

For where to stay, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Chicago trip planner .
