A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Do your shopping at The Magnificent Mile and Kernel's Gourmet Popcorn & More. Take a break from the city and head to Lincoln Park Zoo and Silver Beach County Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm (in Homer Glen), Cowles Bog (in Chesterton) and Whihala Beach Co Park (in Whiting). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, immerse yourself in nature at Starved Rock State Park, appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, and examine the collection at The Field Museum.

For ratings, photos, and more tourist information, use the Chicago trip planner .

In August in Chicago, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 67°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
