What better place to visit on President’s Day 2013 than the city the current President of the United States is from? Chicago! Spend the day in the Field Museum of Natural History to learn about those who reigned this territory before there were ever presidents to do it, or maybe go to the Chicago History Museum to learn just about this city. All of the museums in Chicago are open on President’s Day, so it’s hard to go wrong with any of them.
