A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend) and Rotary Botanical Gardens (in Janesville). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry, get to know the resident critters at Lincoln Park Zoo, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Shedd Aquarium.

To find reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Chicago trip planning website .

December in Chicago sees daily highs of 38°F and lows of 26°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
