A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Step off the beaten path and head to Silver Beach County Park and Six Flags Great America. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Lions Park Beach and Grand Mere State Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen) and Saint Joseph (Whirlpool Compass Fountain & Silver Beach Carousel). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, don't miss a visit to Millennium Park, enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, and get curious at Museum of Science and Industry.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, read our Chicago journey planner.

Expect a daytime high around 78°F in September, and nighttime lows around 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
