A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Millennium Park and Marquette Building. Let the collections at Museum of Science and Industry and The Art Institute of Chicago capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Rosewood Beach (in Highland Park), Weko Park (in Bridgman) and Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, don't miss a visit to Chicago Skyline, appreciate the history behind Cloud Gate, and wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Chicago online sightseeing planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
