A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Relax by the water at Atwater Park & Beach and Rosewood Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ernest Hemingway Birthplace and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Basilica of the Sacred Heart (in South Bend), Silver Beach County Park (in Saint Joseph) and Cantigny Park (in Wheaton). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through The Magnificent Mile, steep yourself in history at Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Lincoln Park Zoo, and admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago.

In August, daytime highs in Chicago are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
