Chicago

— 4 nights

Windy City

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Head to Lincoln Park and The Magnificent Milefor some retail therapy. Kids will enjoy The Art Institute of Chicago and Chicago Riverwalk. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Indiana Dunes State Park (in Chesterton), Baha'i House of Worship (in Wilmette) and Cantigny Park (in Wheaton). And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, take an in-depth tour of Studebaker National Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Holy Name Cathedral.

To see where to stay, photos, maps, and tourist information, use the Chicago online day trip planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
