A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
The Magnificent Mile and The Art Institute of Chicago are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Field Museum and Chicago Cultural Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Prairie Wolf Slough (in Highland Park) and Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, don't miss a visit to Marquette Building, pause for some photo ops at Cloud Gate, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Lincoln Park Zoo.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. May in Chicago sees daily highs of 25°C and lows of 13°C at night. On the 21st (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
