On arriving here, take a look around the first two floors and then take the elevator straight to the top floor where the 'winter garden' is located. A beautiful indoor area with a nice view of the skyline. We did feel a bit intimidated by...More
Stopped in briefly because we had confused it with the Chicago Cultural Center. A beautiful, modern library with interesting small displays on each floor. The winter garden on the top is a good place to sit and relax, but a little bare and disappointing when...More
I made this stop because a tour guide mentioned they have a display of books that were donated by people from England after the great fire. There were about 5,000 donated and they have about 200 on display that are still in their original binding....More
Chicago has a VERY walkable downtown, and we did a lot of exploring. We noticed these huge and amazing rooftop ornaments, and got a closer look. Although the building has the size and general appearance of a classic older building, it is actually brand new,...More

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.
