A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Magnificent Mile and Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park. Visit Millennium Park and Fourth Presbyterian Church for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Standard Bank Stadium (in Crestwood), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Veteran Acres Park (in Crystal Lake). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, try to win big at Horseshoe Hammond, and contemplate the long history of Ernest Hemingway Birthplace.

To find reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Chicago road trip planning app .

In February, daytime highs in Chicago are 36°F, while nighttime lows are 20°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
