A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Museum of Science and Industry and The Magnificent Mile. Do your shopping at Chicago Cultural Center and Box Factory for the Arts. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Swallow Cliff Stairs (in Palos Park), Little Red Schoolhouse (in Willow Springs) and Deer Grove Forest Preserve (in Palatine). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, meet the residents at Lincoln Park Zoo, and stroll through Rosewood Beach.

To see maps, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Chicago tour app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in August, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
