A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Magnificent Mile and Schaefer's Wines and Liquors. Get some cultural insight at The Art Institute of Chicago and The Field Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Chicago: Matt's Produce (in Racine), Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center (in Skokie) and Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb). The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Shedd Aquarium, get to know the resident critters at Lincoln Park Zoo, and admire the landmark architecture of Skydeck Chicago - Willis Tower.
