A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Do some cultural sightseeing at The Magnificent Mile and Museum of Science and Industry. Museum-lovers will get to explore The Art Institute of Chicago and Cantigny Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb) and Rosewood Beach (in Highland Park). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, see the interesting displays at The Field Museum, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Lincoln Park Zoo.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Chicago trip itinerary planning app .

August in Chicago sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 67°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
