A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get in touch with nature at Starved Rock State Park and Silver Beach County Park. Step off the beaten path and head to John Deere Historic Site and Chicago Cultural Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Hickory Creek Winery (in Buchanan), St. Charles History Museum and The Curious Fox Gift (in Saint Charles) and Box Factory for the Arts (in Saint Joseph). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fourth Presbyterian Church, and steep yourself in history at Ernest Hemingway Birthplace.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Chicago journey planner.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. Expect a daytime high around 8°C in March, and nighttime lows around -1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
