A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend), Saint Joseph (Silver Beach Carousel & Whirlpool Compass Fountain) and Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago, enjoy breathtaking views from Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower, examine the collection at The Field Museum, and get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park.

For where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Chicago sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In August, daytime highs in Chicago are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
