This is very close to the Millenium park and is walking distance from it. In fact i think the Millenium park is actually part of/ a section of Grant Park. What i found most impressive is the Agora by Magdalena Abakanowic. Such beauty, such work of art by a Polish woman. The statues consists of 106 cast iron figures, each... More

We primarily came to Grant Park to see the Agora Statues, it was also on our way to the Shedd Aquarium. We loved walking amongst these tall rusty giant giants!

We visited the park to see the Buckingham Fountain but found that the park had a lot more to offer. The garden area is beautiful despite it being winter and the grounds well kept. It seems to be a popular place with locals who use the park for exercise.

I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the park on my last day of a business trip. I loved the sculptures and I walked the park from end to end on a very chilly day. I recommend this as a must-do when in town.

My husband and I had a great time exploring this park. I recommend it to anyone visiting Chicago. We loved the sculptures and the easy parking. We stayed at a hotel nearby so we were within walking distance of the park.

Great, large park to visit, home of the Buckingham fountain. A lot of events are hosted here to just check to make sure something crazy isn't going on if you're planning on leisurely strolling about.

In Grant Park I took some memorable pictures this past summer of landscape and sculpture in front of the city skyline. Located on the park's edge, the Art Institute has colorful outdoor areas with sculptures that are great photography settings. The iconic lions on the main entrance steps are a big photo favorite. Events are scheduled in the park so... More

Great park loads to see, only complaint was the wether was pretty wet. If I had wanted rain I would of stayed in Manchester, sort it out Chicago. Well worth a visit if you are there though!

What a treat! We spent a couple of hours wandering through Grant Park and throughly enjoyed all of the interesting works of art. Plenty of others milling around including families and dog walkers. Great spot for some unique pictures. If you want to get in a little exercise and enjoy some unique sculpture at the same time (all free of... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
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.
