A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Change things up with a short trip to Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe (about 34 minutes away). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, and see the interesting displays at The Field Museum.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Chicago trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In February, daytime highs in Chicago are 2°C, while nighttime lows are -7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
