Beautiful lakefront park with famous Buckingham Fountain and its nightly light show in season (after Memorial Day through Labor Day). Lovely gardens, concerts at bandshell and place where many events begin and end such as annual Chicago Marathon.
Buckingham Fountain is a Chicago landmark in the center of Grant Park. Dedicated in 1927, it is one of the largest fountains in the world. Built in a rococo wedding cake style and inspired by the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles, it is meant to allegorically represent Lake Michigan.
Grant Park is a wonderful area with amazing views of the city, especially near Buckingham Fountain, which you must stop by if you go here. It's also near our old Chicago neighborhood, the South Loop. Most of the big summertime events in the city happen here.
“Millennium Park is definitely worth seeing. You can find a lot of historic and modern sights, as well as the Chicago Art Institute in the park. During the summer time you can enjoy concerts, festivals and outdoor activities out there.”
“The Magnificent Mile is Chicago’s premier commercial district with the most retail stores per square mile in the entire nation!”
“Built in 1921, The Field Museum of Natural History, also known as The Field Museum, is a natural history museum in Chicago, & is one of the largest such museums in the world.”
“One of the biggest Museums in America with an amazing collection. The Modern Wing collections and Impressionists are my favorite. Also the best way to bring creative gift is to visit museum shop.”
