As the third largest city in the USA, it comes as no surprise that this dynamic city is a cultural center which is home to flourishing art, dance, music and theater communities. Chicago has a multitude of performance opportunities, and a visit to any one will create lasting memories. Just a few exciting options for performing are:


Adler Planetarium in the Planetarium's incredibly realistic multi-media show, a dramatic representation of the star studded heavens, near planets and distant galaxies are presented.


Navy Pier is a Chicago landmark with over 50 acres of parks, gardens, shops, restaurants and attractions of every kind.


Shedd Aquarium is the world’s largest aquarium and is home to 8,000 aquatic animals displayed in 299 naturalistic habitats. The Oceanarium recreates a Pacific Northwest coast that is home to whales, sea otters and seals.


Chicago Cultural Center is one of the city’s top ten most popular attractions. Here, a variety of cultural programs and exhibitions, which focus on everything from art to all types of music, are frequently offered.


Field Museum explores life on earth from prehistoric times to the present. Exhibits include travelling through the Pacific, inside Ancient Egypt, dinosaurs, gems and the cultures of North Middle and South America.


Of course there is so much more to see and do. Experience the way things were during the Prohibition Era when you take an Untouchables Gangster Tour to visit the site of Al Capone’s headquarters and where the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre occurred. Learn the story of Chicago from a different perspective on a Chicago River Cruise. Are museums on your list? Visit the Museum

of Science and Industry, the Chicago History Museum or the Art Institute of Chicago. Everybody needs a laugh - why not add the legendary Second City to your itinerary and find out why so many of its alumni now enjoy star status.
