A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore hidden gems such as Silver Beach County Park and Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend), South Haven Lighthouses (in South Haven) and Silver Beach Carousel (in Saint Joseph). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, grab your bike and head to Lakefront Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Anderson Japanese Gardens, and get to know the fascinating history of Chicago Riverwalk.
