A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get in touch with nature at Lincoln Park Zoo and Little Red Schoolhouse. Visit Millennium Park and Basilica of the Sacred Heart for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph), Whihala Beach (in Whiting) and Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, observe the fascinating underwater world at Shedd Aquarium, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, and see the interesting displays at The Field Museum.

For more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Chicago holiday planner.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
