A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago and Lincoln Park Zoo. When in Chicago, make a side trip to see FireZone in Schaumburg, approximately 42 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, admire the landmark architecture of Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, get lost in a book at Harold Washington Library Center, Chicago Public Library, and admire all the interesting features of Wrigley Field.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read Chicago attractions planner.

Durham to Chicago is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Durham to Chicago. When traveling from Durham in August, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Chicago: temperatures range from 84°F by day to 67°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
