Chicago

Chicago ©
A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Explore Chicago's surroundings by going to Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. (in DeKalb), Copper Fiddle Distillery (in Lake Zurich) and Aurora (Splash Country Waterpark & Sri Venkateswara Swami Temple). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, stroll around Millennium Park, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Shedd Aquarium, and take a leisurely stroll along Navy Pier.

Plan my Chicago trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Malmo, Sweden to Chicago is an approximately 23-hour flight. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Malmo to Chicago due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Malmo in July, with highs in Chicago at °C and lows at °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to New Orleans.

Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
New Orleans is known for historic sites, nightlife, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: brush up on your military savvy at The National WWII Museum, go on a hair-raising tour with a ghost and vampire tour, see the interesting displays at Louisiana Children's Museum, and admire the striking features of St. Louis Cathedral.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the New Orleans visit planner.

Getting from Chicago to New Orleans by flight takes about 5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a train. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Chicago in July since evenings lows in New Orleans dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
