A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chicago Riverwalk and Richard H. Driehaus Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Pabst Mansion and Holy Name Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Chicago side-trips: Milwaukee Art Museum (in Milwaukee), Cantigny Park (in Wheaton) and Riverwalk Lot (in Naperville). There's lots more to do: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, examine the collection at Oriental Institute Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Chicago River, and explore the world behind art at The Art Institute of Chicago.

In July in Chicago, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
