Chicago
A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
For shopping fun, head to The Magnificent Mile or American Girl Place. Visit Grand Mere State Park and Silver Beach County Park for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Centennial Beach (in Naperville), Elawa Farm (in Lake Forest) and North Beach Park (in Racine). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lincoln Park Zoo, immerse yourself in nature at Big Foot Beach State Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Oak Street Beach, and get to know the fascinating history of Millennium Park.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 4°C, and evening lows to -2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
