A trip to Chicago isn't complete without taking a stroll down Millennium Park. Most visitors come to Millennium Park to see The Bean (earlier known as the Cloud Gate), which is a polished steel sculpture that plays tricks with the reflection of Chicago's skyline. However, the list of things you can do here are endless, ranging from visiting Grant Park and Crown Fountain to enjoying live performances at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.
I definitely recommend getting the Chicago CityPass. At $98, you get VIP entry to The Field Museum, the Shedd Aquarium and the Museum of Science and Indutsry, and a Fast pass ticket to the Art Institute of Chicago and the SkyDeck. If all these places are on your agenda, then it's totally cost effective to purchase the CityPass.
We were fortunate to spend the 4 th of July weekend in Chicago and indulge in the festivities and celebrations that the city offered. We had an incredible time witnessing the fireworks at the Navy Pier and at Burr Ridge, where we were visiting family. Despite spending such a short time in Chicago, I think we managed to cover a lot of touristy places.
So these are my must do's in Chicago! It is an amazing city and I'm sure Chicago has so much more to offer and I'd love to be back here someday and explore it more.
