A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore and learn at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. Get some cultural insight at The Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Deer Grove Forest Preserve (in Palatine), Prairie Wolf Slough (in Highland Park) and Wildlife Discovery Center (in Lake Forest). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lincoln Park Zoo, take a peaceful walk through Swallow Cliff Stairs, trek along Little Red Schoolhouse, and engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry.

To find maps, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago itinerary app .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
