This is a good place to stop and take pictures on your way by. Good waterway and skyscraper views. The river was filled with boats for the architectural and cityscape tours.

This has a really good view for you to take pictures and there are some stores near. But that's all, there is nothing very special to it so don't expect much

Wonderful view from the bridge. It snowed one day during our visit but you enjoyed the view from the bridge.

You got quite good looks and you can walk over it. It is quite old but, well...it's a bridge. :) Nevertheless, if you visit Chicago, you should have been here!

Awesome view from the bridge. It was cold and windy while I was there. I could just imagine how great it would be in warmer weather. A must see photo spot in Chicago. Make sure you take in the whole 360 degree view.

One of the best photo spots in the city. It´s just a perfect spot so the city can look it´s best. If you can be there when the bridge is up ad there is boat beneath, even better.

It's always the most simple things that are the best. Walking the bridge and walking around the water is so relaxing, and even better ... its free!

Chicago is one of the most beautiful cities and the Michigan Avenue Bridge is one of the most iconic places and where the most pictures are taken from. It is take you from beautiful parks across the river to the Magnificent Mile for shopping/dining or visa versa.
