A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Millennium Park and Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Cantigny Park (in Wheaton) and South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes & Basilica of the Sacred Heart). There's still lots to do: engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, make a trip to Buckingham Fountain, examine the collection at Swedish American Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Chicago Cultural Center.

To see reviews, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, use the Chicago visit planner .

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 September, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
