A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get a sense of the local culture at Carpenter Creek Cellars and Prarie States Winery. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Starved Rock State Park and Hawks View Golf Club. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph), Weber House and Garden (in Streator) and St. Julian Winery-Union Pier (in Union Pier). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, learn about winemaking at DC Estate Winery, and hike along Geneva Lake Shore Path.

To find where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Chicago day trip planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In April in Chicago, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 5°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
