A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore hidden gems such as Starved Rock State Park and Kishwauketoe Conservancy. Escape the urban bustle at Franklin Creek Grist Mill and Kishwaukee River Forest Preserve. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: St. Charles Public Library (in Saint Charles), Rockford (Discovery Center Museum & Severson Dells Nature Center) and Washington Square (in Ottawa). Next up on the itinerary: get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, meet the residents at Lincoln Park Zoo, take a leisurely stroll along Navy Pier, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Milton Lee Olive Park.

For photos, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Chicago trip planner .

In April in Chicago, expect temperatures between 59°F during the day and 40°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
