I am really impressed by the Park System of Chicago. Very well laid out and beautiful. I could see where during nice weather events would be held in the park.

The park has tons of little parks in it. you will find cute little gardens among the larger ones and secluded places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. You will find art, Buckingham Fountain, fountains and more. Great for urban adventure all year long.

It has the skating place with all that jumping types structures and some kids were amazing. Also, not sure about the history but it had that park full of lower-half walking statues.

I really enjoyed my afternoon at Grant Park, despite the blustery, cold weather. This was my favorite park along the row of parks that line Lake Michigan in Chicago. The leg sculptures are interesting, and you're close to the Field Museum!

A very happening park not too far from the Drake Hotel and various art museums. Always seems to be something happening. Easy and safe to walk around in. Interesting art and sculpture

Lovely city park joining downtown and the lake. Many individual sub-divided parks within, each with different sights, walking paths, and personalities. A great place for some exercise, a casual stroll, or just some contemplating time.

I loved the look of this piece. Invoked many different possible visions of exactly where these ' people' were headed. Or not headed

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
