Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Weko Park (in Bridgman), Matt's Produce (in Racine) and Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kathy Osterman Beach, browse the exhibits of Ernest Hemingway Birthplace, and examine the collection at The Field Museum.
