A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You've added Crown Fountain, The Field Museum, The Loop, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Starved Rock State Park and University of Notre Dame. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Matthiessen State Park (in Utica), B. Harley Bradley House (in Kankakee) and South Bend (Basilica of the Sacred Heart & Purcell Pavilion). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, and enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.
