A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Visiting Lincoln Park Zoo and Cowles Bog will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Red Oak Nature Center (in Batavia), Willowbrook Wildlife Center (in Glen Ellyn) and Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, contemplate the long history of Pleasant Home, identify plant and animal life at Three Oaks Recreation Area, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Michigan.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Chicago trip simple and quick.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 8°C, and evening lows to -1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
