Including, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry.

When to visit: Any time of year is a good time to visit Chicago, if you enjoy more moderate temperatures, well the best time to visit is during the autumn months. April and May are also good options.

Staying safe: Chicago has had a reputation for gang violence in the recent past, but for the visitor, you need not worry. Stick to the main areas and keep away from the districts, and you’ll be ok. Yes, there are pickpockets, like in most tourist areas, but keep your belongings hidden, and you’ll be fine.
