Attractions and tips

Millennium Park offers access to the lake as well as a music pavilion for concerts, ice-skating and even a Ferris wheel. The park is conveniently located downtown.

For an iconic look at Chicago, check out Cloud Gate, also known as The Bean. This open-air sculpture is unique and provides a great photo opportunity. Head inside to the Art Institute of Chicago and past the two bronze lions at the door to take in art from around the world, including its trademark American gothic pieces.

Despite being referred to as the Windy City, Chicago doesn’t have too much wind. Instead, expect the summer to be hot and humid and the winters to be snowy and cold. The spring and fall tend to be on the milder end of the spectrum.
