A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Step out of the city life by going to Silver Beach County Park and Bender Park Waterfront. You'll get in some beach time at Rosewood Beach and Whihala Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Hawthorn Hollow - Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum (in Kenosha), Geneva Lake Shore Path (in Lake Geneva) and Weko Park (in Bridgman). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, appreciate the extensive heritage of Millennium Park, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, and don't miss a visit to The Magnificent Mile.

To see reviews, maps, photos, and tourist information, read Chicago online attractions planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
