Chicago is our kind of town: From its rise from the ashes following the Great Fire of 1871 to its stellar skyscrapers and unique style of (what else!) pizza, Chi-Town offers plenty to do … and eat!
In less than a decade, Millennium Park in downtown Chicago has become one of the most iconic urban greens in the US; its important architectural and artistic builds include Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate sculpture, the Crown Fountain by Catalan artist Jaume Plensa and the Frank Gehry-designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion, pictured. Here, crowds gather on the Great Lawn, a vast green space, under a web of steel beams where attached microphones help project sound. People gather for concerts, picnics or to simply admire Chicago’s stunning skyline.

Heading to Chicago? Then get out that camera! The Windy City offers plenty of photographic inspiration like this 110-ton-pound stainless steel sculpture -- what locals the “The Bean.” Just head to Millennium Park on the downtown waterfront for a view of the statue that reflects Chicago’s skyline. Then swing by the Magnificent Mile for a look at the new, giant-sized Marilyn Monroe sculpture – another pic fit for the scrapbook.
