A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Magnificent Mile and Chicago Cultural Center. Bring the kids along to Museum of Science and Industry and Navy Pier. When in Chicago, make a side trip to see Whihala Beach in Whiting, approximately Whiting away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, don't miss a visit to Cloud Gate, tour the pleasant surroundings at Millennium Park, and get a new perspective on nature at Field Museum.

To find traveler tips, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, read our Chicago day trip planning tool.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
