A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get some historical perspective at Millennium Park and Ernest Hemingway Birthplace. We've included these beaches for you: Silver Beach County Park and Rosewood Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Weko Park (in Bridgman), Whihala Beach (in Whiting) and Bender Park Waterfront (in Oak Creek). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lincoln Park Zoo, examine the collection at The Field Museum, kick back and relax at Oak Street Beach, and engage your brain at Museum of Science and Industry.

For photos, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Chicago journey planning website .

July in Chicago sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 67°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
