Nice green space

Great to walk around, have a picnic, and just relax. Saw lots of joggers and bicycle/segway tours. Close to the Museum Campus. Easy to walk to from downtown/the Loop.

This park is one of the largest and easiest to access. It is a popular favorite to house special events such as the taste of Chicago, NFL Draft and Lollapooza. For that reason, expect to have torn up grass most months beware that there are many homeless at night. It is a very large park and very lovely just before... More

Grant Park is a a short walk away from Downtown Chicago and allows on to escape into a serene world just by crossing the road. The seemingly endless shore of Michigan provides for a beautiful walk and one can head to the Millennium Park which is a short distance away. It epitomises Chicago's "Windy City" sobriquet and do not forget... More

I walked in the park for like 2 hours, just wandering around. The weather was very nice that day so it made the walking even more relaxing. The park is huge.

Grant Park was beautiful!! Most of our three day adventure of Chicago has been on foot and it was so nice to see a park in the middle of it all. We loved it!

I love Grant Park! It is such a fun place to walk around on a nice sunny day. It can be pretty cold in spring and fall since it's right on the lake.

A beautiful park on the shores of Lake Michigan. Well worth a visit. Close to the business district, and the Millenium park and Cloud gate are also close by. IT was terribly cold when we visited (Mid April), but the beautiful cloud formations and mournful landscapes made this visit special.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood 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.
