A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Visit Grand Mere State Park and Silver Beach County Park for some beach relaxation. Popular historic sites such as Cantigny Park and Basilica of the Sacred Heart are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend), Baha'i House of Worship (in Wilmette) and Milwaukee (Milwaukee Art Museum & Historic Third Ward). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Chicago Cultural Center, take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, get to know the fascinating history of Chicago Riverwalk, and explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago.
