Short Trip to Chicago
Short Trip to Chicago Reviews
Mar 19, 2006
I went to Chicago last summer and here are some of my recommendations about things to see:
1) Millennium Park - located in downtown, it has amazing architecture
and landscrape designs. There's a stainless steel pedestrian bridge and
all sorts of interesting sculptures. I read that there's also free
classical music concerts. Stop by Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park if
you're going on a romantic stroll. 2) Art Institute of Chicago - it has a great collection. You probably won't have time to see it all. 3) Magnificent Mile - It's actually North Michigan Ave. and it's the upscale shopping district of Chicago.
4) 96th Floor Signature Lounge - Forget about the Sears Tower and enjoy
the view here instead. It's located in the John Hancock Center (3rd
tallest building in Chicago) and offers a much better atmosphere. The
food is expensive so I recommend going on a clear night and buying a
cocktail instead. 5) Finally...eat! That was my favorite
part. Make sure you get some Chicago pizza and try out the numerous
ethnic cuisines they have there.
One thing I didn't do but I heard is great is taking a boat tour.
They tell you about Chicago's rich architectural history. I know it
sounds boring, but my friends thought it was great.
