A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Your inner history buff will appreciate John Deere Historic Site and Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. Get a sense of the local culture at Basilica of the Sacred Heart and IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Weber House and Garden (in Streator), Starved Rock State Park (in Utica) and Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Silver Beach County Park, do a tasting at St. Julian Winery-Union Pier, look for all kinds of wild species at Sarett Nature Center, and savor the flavors at Apple Barn Orchard and Winery.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Chicago trip itinerary planning website .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
