A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Museum of Science and Industry and Navy Pier. Venture out of the city with trips to First Division Museum at Cantigny (in Wheaton), Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend) and Silver Beach Carousel (in Saint Joseph). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Lincoln Park Zoo, and enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago trip builder website .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 50°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
