We walked from Millennial Park to the Adler Planetarium and back again. On a calm, sunny afternoon in late autumn Grant Park was pleasant and attractive, with a wonderful view of the Chicago skyline. Since our objective was the planetarium, we didn't have time to...More

Great park. Wonderful views. There's very beautiful fountain. If you need WC you can find it here. Walk and enjoy yourself.

Grant Park concert series in Chicago charged me for 212 tickets, when I only purchased 1. A total nightmare. I have spent countless hours trying to correct this. Grant Park is totally incompetent and irresponsible.

We walked past this park on the way to the CTA. Wish we'd had more time here to examine the various sculptures. There were people and dogs, kids enjoying the day.

This park is large and on the water. We were here for marathon day and it has the capacity to hold quite a large number of people. Art places throughout. Certainly worth the visit.

A nice park to relax in during your lunch. Amazing how relaxing a park in the city can be. The sculpture still has me guessing its meaning.

This is a very large park with plenty walks and has the amazing Agora Sculptures, as well as the superb Buckingham Fountain. Eventually of you walk north you get the Millennium Park and the Maggie Daley Park.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
