A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Take a break from the city and head to Lincoln Park Zoo and Little Red Schoolhouse. Get some historical perspective at Millennium Park and Fourth Presbyterian Church. When in Chicago, make a side trip to see Cowles Bog in Chesterton, approximately 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, don't miss a visit to Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, and admire all the interesting features of Wrigley Field.

For maps, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Chicago trip itinerary site .
