A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get outdoors at Silver Beach County Park and Starved Rock State Park. Get some historical perspective at John Deere Historic Site and Washington Square. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Pontiac (IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum, International Wall Dog Mural and Sign Art Museum, & more), Amboy Depot Museum (in Amboy) and Porter County Museum (in Valparaiso). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, take an in-depth tour of Studebaker National Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Chicago Cultural Center, and take in nature's colorful creations at Weber House and Garden.

To find where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago driving holiday site .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
