A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Museum of Science and Industry and The Magnificent Mile. You'll explore and learn at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park) and Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs). There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Millennium Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Milton Lee Olive Park, meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium, and examine the collection at Swedish American Museum.

To find other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Chicago online trip itinerary builder .

If you are flying in from Greece, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
