A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Appreciate the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and Swedish American Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Magnificent Mile and The Field Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb), Bender Park Waterfront (in Oak Creek) and Cantigny Park (in Wheaton). There's lots more to do: try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond, pause for some photo ops at Cloud Gate, take in panoramic vistas at Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, and get curious at Museum of Science and Industry.

For ratings, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Chicago trip planner.

In June, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 63°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
