Grant Park

No trip to Chicago is complete without a visit to Grant Park. Also home to the infamous Buckingham Fountain, this park boasts 319 acres of green space, museums, a rose garden, and an abundance of nearby top-rated restaurants. Grant Park is a great starting off point to any Chicago newcomer.

Millennium Park

Right up the street from Grant park is the must see 24.5 acre Millennium Park. The park is home to the public art sculpture Cloud Gate (also known as The Bean) as well as Crown Fountain. Millennium Park has pristine views of Lake Michigan and is home to a number of summer concerts at the Pritzker Pavilion. While you’re visiting, stop in to the highly rated New American restaurant, The Gage.

Chicago gets cold in the winter, and a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago is a perfect cold weather activity. It houses a permanent collection of 300,000 works of art and has plenty of rotating exhibits. After an expansion in 2009, the museum is now the second largest art museum in the US. Art Institute of Chicago even offers free admission on Thursday nights (for Illinois residents).
