A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Beer Tastings & Tours and Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Venture out of the city with trips to Riverwalk Lot (in Naperville), Cantigny Park (in Wheaton) and South Bend (Studebaker National Museum & Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, stroll around Maggie Daley Park, admire the natural beauty at Chicago Botanic Garden, and get your game on at The Escape Game Chicago.

To see where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read Chicago vacation planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Chicago can reach 71°F, while at night they dip to 52°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
