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 Kishwauketoe Conservancy. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Millennium Park and Fourth Presbyterian Church. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Hammond Lakefront Park and Bird Santuary (in Hammond). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, admire all the interesting features of Wrigley Field, tour the pleasant surroundings at Milton Lee Olive Park, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Shedd Aquarium.
