​​Lincoln Park
Not always the beautiful park it is today. Back in the 1800’s is was the location of the City Cemetery. Now Chicago's largest public park is almost a third larger than New York's Central Park. Stretching along the lakeshore, the community area contains the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Cultural Center and so much more!  Additionally, it offers golf courses, baseball fields, a skate park and paths for walking, jogging or biking.
Cloud Gate Sculpture in Millennium Park Chicago
Millennium Park
Pretty impressive, but when you actually understand the story behind this amazing park it become so much more interesting! Millennium Park is Chicago's pride and joy, and it should be with all the money that was and still is poured in to it.  To think of all the people who made it possible and how much they've impacted tourism in Chicago with this park alone is pretty remarkable! We love our city!
Exterior of the Field Museum in Chicago
Chicago’s Amazing Museum Campus
Where you'll find three of the city’s leading institutions all in one place. Spend a day exploring the underwater world of aquatic animals at the Shedd Aquarium , a dramatic history of the natural world at The Field Museum , and the far-out galaxies of space at the Adler Planetarium .  These three museums are fascinating, but learning the history behind the people and the money that made them happen is pretty fancinating too.

Chicago Beaches!
Our beaches stretch 26 miles on Lake Michigan with an 18.5-mile long bike path along the waterfront. While most cities build industrially all the way up to their respective lakefronts, Chicago's remains an open playground to the public.
Wrigley Building at Michigan Avenue Bridge in Chicago
The Magnificent Mile
The DuSable Bridge was one of the later bridges built across the main branch of the river. Its completion began a transformation of Michigan Avenue allowing it to become the elegant boulevard we know today.  Michigan Avenue is THE PLACE to shop, but you can find these stores in any major city in the world. What you can't find anywhere are the architecture gems that line this 'Magnificent Mile'!
