We couldn't really experience the park because we were there for the Taste of Chicago. There were people everywhere...maybe next time.

This free open space is a fun artsy place to check out. Lots of open space and a LOT of homeless people like to sleep here. It is worth seeing. Not something I'd do again.

Chicago is so lucky to have such an open public space right downtown and along the lake. Grant Park is a treasure and not to be missed on a visit to the city. Designed in a classic French style by our city's own Daniel Burnham. That man's vision shaped and guided our city towards what it is today. So for... More

In one corner on the south end of the park, there is the Agora Sculptures. Don't miss them! They are one of the main attractions of the park.

This park always has some activity going on, whether it's a mini marathon in the winter or Lollapalooza in the summer. Centrally located...what more could you ask for?

The kids thought this place was pretty neat, they enjoyed walking through all those legs, but really didn't understand the point.

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.
