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 Starved Rock State Park and Anderson Japanese Gardens. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: South Bend (University of Notre Dame & Basilica of the Sacred Heart) and Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, and see the interesting displays at The Field Museum.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago tour itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In December, daytime highs in Chicago are 3°C, while nighttime lows are -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
