A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Venture out of the city with trips to South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes & Basilica of the Sacred Heart). Next up on the itinerary: stroll around Millennium Park, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Shedd Aquarium.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Chicago trip maker site .

Ann Arbor to Chicago is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Central Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Ann Arbor in August since evenings lows in Chicago dip to 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
