A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb) and Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, shop like a local with The Magnificent Mile, take a leisurely stroll along Navy Pier, and meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Chicago journey builder site .

In April, daytime highs in Chicago are 59°F, while nighttime lows are 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
