4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

See the flowers and statutes, walk by the river...it's great. They had an artist's fair in the rose garden when we went. Nice.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

It's a beautiful park specially during the summer. It also has a great view to the city's skyline.
Around the Grant Park there are 2 great places to have brunch (they are always crowded): Bongo Room and Yolk (check my reviews on TripAdvisor).

“Great place to hang out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Buckingham fountain is a must see as is the view of the chicago skyline and the Lake from the park. The sculptures are fantastic as are the places to bike and walk.

“Always something interesting here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

If it's not a sculpture garden or a concert or fair it's something else. Grant Park, located between Columbus Dr.(near Michigan Ave) and Lake Shore Drive almost overlooks Lake Michigan. It is a nice expanse of park in downtown Chicago very near the Art Institute, Buckingham Fountain and the Lake.
