Let the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and Chicago Cultural Center capture your imagination. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to University of Notre Dame (in South Bend), Indiana Dunes State Park (in Chesterton) and Washington Square (in Ottawa). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, hike along Geneva Lake Shore Path, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, and see the interesting displays at The Field Museum.
