A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Starved Rock State Park and Chicago Riverwalk. You'll explore and learn at The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: John Deere Historic Site (in Grand Detour), Washington Square (in Ottawa) and Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home (in Dixon). There's lots more to do: make a trip to Millennium Park, go for a walk through The 606, look for all kinds of wild species at Emily Oaks Nature Center, and meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium.

For ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read Chicago trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 59°F in April, and nighttime lows around 40°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
