A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Popular historic sites such as Millennium Park and Fourth Presbyterian Church are in your itinerary. Get outdoors at Lincoln Park Zoo and Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Hammond Lakefront Park and Bird Santuary (in Hammond). There's lots more to do: get curious at Museum of Science and Industry, explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Shedd Aquarium.
