    One thing that amazes me about Chicago is all of the green space, and this park is an example. This park walks you along the lake with great views of the city on both sides. One side has a great view ...  more »

    Gorgeous view of the Chicago sky line. It's often filled with bikers, walkers, and photographers. It's a nice wide path alongside the beach. Highly recommend for an evening stroll!

    It's a quiet place for sitting with great skyline views. All of the fountains are drained, and now resemble concrete crop circles. A bit depressing to look at.

    This park has something for everybody, be it dog owners, couples or a family wanting to spend some quality time together. The view of the lake front skyline from Oak street beach nearby is awesome. The overall atmosphere is festive because of all the people cycling around, swimming in the lake or relaxing on the beach. There are lots of spots to take good photos and this is supported by the fact that I saw two separate wedding parties getting their photos clicked here. This is definitely a must visit.

    Quiet picnic area covered with grass and never crowded because it offers no amenities; 5-min walk from Navy Pier.

    Great skyline views! Very serene when the fountains are running.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
