The best time to visit the city of Chicago with tweens is between April and October, when families can take advantage of the city's biggest and best attractions -- many of which are outdoors and an easy walk from one another. Stay at one of the hotels along Michigan Avenue (the Magnificent Mile) for convenient access to a great day of fun along the river and lakefront. Word to the wise: To get the most out of your trip, be sure to wear your walking shoes.
