  • Neat spot for a quick 5 minute walkthrough. Lots of people protesting/evangelizing outside with megaphones trying to out yell each other though.
  • This historic structure survived the Great Fire and now has local art exhibits. My favorite one was on Cards Against Humanity. Always free.
  • Other than it's function as tourist landmark (& survivor of the great Chicago fire) the water tower often has a free gallery inside showcasing local artists, charities, and events. It's a great little gallery (although small) but a good way to break up the shopping and storefronts along Michigan Ave.
  • Stunning all day long! But the view at night is surreal!
  • nice place for tourist and locals alike
