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 Bender Park Waterfront and Silver Beach County Park. Relax by the water at Rosewood Beach and Weko Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Whihala Beach (in Whiting), North Beach Park (in Racine) and Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to The Magnificent Mile, explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field, explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, and get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, use the Chicago travel tool .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
