Millennium Park
201 East Randolph Street, Chicago, IL
Located in the Loop neighborhood, Millennium Park is Chicago's town square for art, culture, and relaxation. Public art installations make appearances in the park throughout the year. Cloud Gate and Crown Fountain both help to draw 25 million visitors to the park annually.

Cloud Gate
201 East Randolph Street, Chicago, IL
Cloud Gate is a famous public sculpture by Anish Kapoor that serves as the unofficial centerpiece of Millennial Park. This shiny, reflective structure is made up of 168 stainless-steel plates that have been welded together with zero seams. Its surface offers a wobbly, distorted reflection of the Chicago skyline.

Crown Fountain
201 East Randolph Street, Chicago, IL
This 50-foot interactive work of public art was designed by a Spanish artist named Jaume Plensa. Composed of a reflecting pool made of black granite positioned between a pair of glass brick towers, this "digital" fountain cascades water from May through October.

Lurie Garden
220 East Monroe Street, Chicago, IL
Located inside Millennium Park, Lurie Garden is a 2.5-acre wonderland of perennials, bulbs, grasses, shrubs, and trees. A beautiful boardwalk cutting through Lure Garden creates a perfect opportunity for a stroll through lush terrain. Full of shade and light, the garden features the world's largest green roof.

The Magnificent Mile
Chicago's famed Magnificent Mile is a glittery, manicured 13-block stretch full of many of the city's best restaurants, retail stores, and hotels. It stretches across North Michigan Avenue from Oak Street until hitting the Chicago River.

Chicago Riverwalk
The 1.25-mile Chicago Riverwalk offers a short walk with long views. Located on the south bank of the Chicago River's main branch, this path is brimming with options for dining, shopping, and entertainment. The path can also be paddled!

Vietnam Memorial
330 Chicago Riverwalk
Take time out for patriotism and reflection while breezing through Chicago. Chicago's 330 Vietnam Memorial was rededicated in 2015 with a new look in honor of members of the U.S. Armed Services who served in Vietnam. The sculpture placed above the walkway leading to the memorial was designed by a Vietnam veteran named Gary Tillery.

222 West Merchandise Mart Plaza, Chicago, IL
Constructed in 1930, The Mart stands today as the world's largest commercial building and design center. It was once the tallest building in the world. While the building is currently occupied by several businesses, retailers, and restaurants, visitors are free to simply walk around. The Jules Guérin murals in the lobby are not to be missed!
