Things to do in Chicago appeal to all holidaymakers regardless of age, taste, or budget. Inquisitive minds can indulge their passion for knowledge at Museum of Science and Industry. Art lovers can admire the works of Old Masters, Impressionist, Post-Impressionists, and American artists at The Art Institute of Chicago, while baseball fans must visit Wrigley Field, the history-steeped home of the Chicago Cubs.
