A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Family-friendly places like Museum of Science and Industry and Lincoln Park Zoo will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes & Basilica of the Sacred Heart), Silver Beach Carousel (in Saint Joseph) and First Division Museum at Cantigny (in Wheaton). The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, don't miss a visit to Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond, and stroll around Millennium Park.
