A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Take a break from the city and head to Silver Beach County Park and Whihala Beach Co Park. Millennium Park and Pleasant Home will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Chicago to go to Naperville and see Centennial Beach, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, tour the pleasant surroundings at Oak Street Beach, wander the streets of The Magnificent Mile, and try your luck at Horseshoe Hammond.

To see photos, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Chicago tour itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 45°F in March, and nighttime lows around 30°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
