A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get outdoors at Veteran Acres Park and Atwater Park & Beach. Do your shopping at The Magnificent Mile and Chicago Cultural Center. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Basilica of St. Josaphat (in Milwaukee). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond, steep yourself in history at Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Fourth Presbyterian Church.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago trip itinerary maker website .

In January in Chicago, expect temperatures between 32°F during the day and 18°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
