A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes 360 Chicago Observation Deck, Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower. Museum of Science and Industry and The Field Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Lincoln Park Zoo and Lakefront Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs), Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park) and Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center (in Skokie). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Shedd Aquarium, admire the landmark architecture of Chicago Cultural Center, and explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago.
