A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Visit Basilica of the Sacred Heart and Chicago Riverwalk for their historical value. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Art Institute of Chicago and Cantigny Park. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Volo Auto Museum (in Volo), Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend) and Pontiac (Museum of the Gilding Arts & IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Milwaukee Art Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Holy Name Cathedral, get curious at Field Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Garfield Park Conservatory.
