A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Escape the urban bustle at Kayaking & Canoeing and Silver Beach County Park. You'll explore and learn at Discovery Center Museum and Cantigny Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Rockford Art Museum (in Rockford), Saint Joseph (St. Joseph Lighthouses & Silver Beach Carousel) and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore (in Porter). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Lincoln Park, don't miss a visit to Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes, grab your bike and head to Lakefront Trail, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
