Is it worth visiting in September?

Hello! My family is planning a week in the Chicago area next month, and are considering taking a few days to drive down to Nauvoo and other interesting/charming sites along the way. But I've heard the town kind of shuts down after summer? Is it worth the drive? We're not anxious about seeing EVERYTHING in Chicago - my husband went to grad school there, and we're both familiar with the city - so we just want this to be fun for the kids and not stressful for us. The kids are 2, 4 and 5, but really excellent, pro travelers :-) We are LDS, so the church history stuff is interesting to us. Any tips or advice would be very much appreciated!! Thanks!!!

Nothing shuts down in September. Sep is hight tourist season for people without children. The kids are back in school ( well, not yours) and adults can finally enjoy themselves, lines are shorter, sometimes summer souvenir stock is on sale.

Nauvoo is important to LDS.
