So much to do, so little time- how will you plan your next visit to Chicago? Personally, we love these attractions any time we’re in the Windy City:
360 Chicago: Grab the elevator- not the stairs!- to the 94thfloor, where 360 Chicago in the Hancock Tower lets you eat and observe the city from 1,000 feet in the air. The former John Hancock Observatory recently added Tilt, an attraction that lets visitors step onto an enclosed platform that extends from the building at a 30-degree angle.
Museum of Contemporary Art: With one of the country’s largest collections of modern art, the Museum of Contemporary Art often houses unique, interactive exhibits plus a world-class gift store, bookstore, restaurant, theater, and sculpture garden.
Water Tower Place: If you feel like lightening your wallet, head to Water Tower Place on Michigan Avenue, a seven-story complex with kid-friendly stores like the American Girl and Lego stores. Fuel up with a bite at the expansive food court.
The Field Museum: Born of a necessity to house the biological and anthropological collections from the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893, the Field Museum features over 30 permanent exhibitions that range from dinosaurs to ancient Egyptian tombs. Say hi to “Sue” for us!
Maggie Daley Park: The latest addition to the Chicago lakefront, the Maggie Daley Park gives visitors to Chicago a brand-new way to experience the city’s parks. The Maggie Daley Park’s unique features include an ice-skating ribbon, climbing walls and rock climbing sculptures, a play garden, a field house, and more. In the mood for a picnic? Pack some food to go and enjoy a relaxing meal al fresco on one of the many green lawns the park has to offer.
No matter what your interests are, the city of Chicago has something to offer. The only question is how you’ll fit it all in!
