A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Get a sense of the local culture at The Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Silver Beach County Park and Matthiessen State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Rogers-Lakewood Park (in Valparaiso), Chesterton (Butler Winery & Indiana Dunes State Park) and Albanese Candy Factory (in Merrillville). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, and take in panoramic vistas at Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.
