A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Appreciate the collections at Museum of Science and Industry and Swedish American Museum. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Lincoln Park Zoo and Little Red Schoolhouse. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Willowbrook Wildlife Center (in Glen Ellyn), Springbrook Nature Center (in Itasca) and Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fourth Presbyterian Church, admire all the interesting features of Millennium Park, and don't miss a visit to Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.

To see more things to do, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Chicago trip planner .
