A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You've now added Chicago History Museum to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb) and Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Shedd Aquarium, get to know the resident critters at Lincoln Park Zoo, and engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Chicago trip simple and quick.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. August in Chicago sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
