A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Do your shopping at The Magnificent Mile and Tom's Farm Market and Greenhouse. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Silver Beach County Park and Whittaker Woods Golf Club. When in Chicago, make a side trip to see Starved Rock State Park in Utica, approximately 1h 45 min away. The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, and try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond.

In May, daytime highs in Chicago are 71°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
