A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Illinois Prairie Path (in Wheaton) and South Bend (Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes & Basilica of the Sacred Heart). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, observe the fascinating underwater world at Shedd Aquarium, appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Lincoln Park Zoo.

To find where to stay, ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Chicago vacation planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
