For me this was the center of Chicago. The River was the divide between the Magnificent Mile, retail and residential district of downtown, north of the river and the Loop, commercial and visitor district of downtown, south of the river, while Michigan divided the Lake from the Interior. We crossed this bridge multiple times during our visit and it was such an impressive place to be over the water surrounded by the tallest and most important buildings in the city. It is here at the bridge that you find landmark buildings like the Tribune Tower and the Wrigley Building. This does not even include the bridge itself which is adorned with architectural features. Finally, we did a river cruise which allowed us to go under the bridge. Again for me, this was the center of Chicago.
