A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Millennium Park and Pleasant Home will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Magnificent Mile and Museum of Science and Industry. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs), Red Oak Nature Center (in Batavia) and Cowles Bog (in Chesterton). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lincoln Park Zoo, contemplate the long history of Ernest Hemingway Birthplace, try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond, and identify plant and animal life at Willowbrook Wildlife Center.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Chicago road trip planning website .

In April in Chicago, expect temperatures between 59°F during the day and 40°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
