HANNAH’S TOP 5 SPOTS IN CHICAGO
1. THE WATER TOWER
The Water Tower itself is gorgeous. You can tour the historic building, however it is what is around the tower that makes this place number one on my list. Mostly because the Water Tower Mall is across the street, but also because of the people who sit on the benches outside of the tower. I have had many interesting conversations with people all over the world right here.
2. NAVY PIER
Navy pier has many exciting plans this summer. The first actually happened last week. They put a new ferris wheel in! There is a rich history to Navy Pier and a great place to explore.
3. MILLENNIUM PARK
There is something that sparks the imagination in this city. Millennium Park is one of those places. The Millennium outdoor stadium has many free concerts in the city. You can experience anything from classical to rock to R&B music. You must see the Cloud Gate or also known as the Bean… just to take a picture with it.
4. THE ART INSTITUTE
I love the Art Institute because of the many classic exhibits. Walk around and spend the day. If you want to experience Chicago’s art but have less time check out The Museum of Contemporary Art. This museum changes the exhibit often so you will never experience the same thing. It’s amazing. Unlike the Museum of Contemporary Art you can get lost in the Art Institute. Just recently The Art Institute had Van Gogh’s Bedroom on display. Do you ever imagine what it would be like to fly on the plane from France to Chicago with Van Gogh’s masterpiece in the cargo? I do. That would be insane!
5. THE PLANETARIUM
I go there three or four times a year because it is by far the best view of the Chicago sky line. End your trip sitting on the steps with the others from around the world who also decided to take in the view of this breath-taking city.
Chicago is a diverse city, but throughout the cars on Lake Shore drive, the boats in the harbor and the many bikers on the Magnificent Mile there is a theme of connection.
