A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get some cultural insight at The Magnificent Mile and The Art Institute of Chicago. You'll get in some beach time at Silver Beach County Park and Grand Mere State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs), Cowles Bog (in Chesterton) and Willowbrook Wildlife Center (in Glen Ellyn). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, experience rural life at Elawa Farm, try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond, and contemplate the long history of Pleasant Home.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Chicago travel app .

In May in Chicago, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 52°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
