A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Let the collections at The Art Institute of Chicago and Cantigny Park capture your imagination. Ernest Hemingway Birthplace and Basilica of the Sacred Heart will appeal to history buffs. Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Grotto of Our Lady Lourdes (in South Bend), Prairie States Winery (in Genoa) and Basilica of St. Josaphat (in Milwaukee). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, contemplate the long history of Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, admire the striking features of Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, and engage your brain at Field Museum.

October in Chicago sees daily highs of 21°C and lows of 11°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
