A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Starved Rock State Park and Anderson Japanese Gardens. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to University of Notre Dame (in South Bend) and Saint Joseph (Silver Beach Carousel & Silver Beach County Park). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, explore and take pictures at Millennium Park, and admire the local landmark of Buckingham Fountain.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Chicago trip maker app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
