A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Magnificent Mile and Chicago Cultural Center. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Weko Park (in Bridgman), Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph) and Bender Park Waterfront (in Oak Creek). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lincoln Park Zoo, make a trip to Cloud Gate, examine the collection at The Field Museum, and kick back and relax at Whihala Beach.

In July in Chicago, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 67°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
