A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Take a break from the city and head to Lincoln Park Zoo and Deer Grove Forest Preserve. Appreciate the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Hawthorn Hollow - Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum (in Kenosha), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Volo Bog State Natural Area (in Ingleside). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, take in panoramic vistas at Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, identify plant and animal life at Prairie Wolf Slough, and steep yourself in history at Pleasant Home.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Chicago online travel route planner .

In May, daytime highs in Chicago are 71°F, while nighttime lows are 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
