A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Go for a jaunt from Chicago to South Bend to see Basilica of the Sacred Heart about 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Shedd Aquarium, admire the landmark architecture of 360 Chicago Observation Deck, and get curious at Museum of Science and Industry.

For maps, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, read Chicago day trip planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 65°F in October, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
