City Tips

  1. CULTURE:If you're looking for a way to spend an afternoon taking in culture from around the world, consider a visit to The Art Institute of Chicago. The Art Institute of Chicago is a world renowned art museum that offers visitors a glimpse at one of the largest permanent collections of art in America. The Art Institute?s mission is to collect, preserve and interpret artwork of the highest quality, while having a collection diverse enough to encompass the world?s wide ranging creative traditions. The public is encouraged to visit for inspiration and to learn about the artistic traditions of cultures from around the world. The Art Institute offers 40 special exhibitions per year to the public and also features daily gallery tours, daily lectures and special performances throughout the year. 

  2. SELFIE LOCATIONS: If you're looking to visit one of Chicago?s most iconic landmarks, check out Millennium Park in the heart of Downtown Chicago. The beautiful lakeside park is home to the exemplary Cloud Gate statue, amazing fountains, the serene lurie gardens, the McCormick tribune ice rink and plenty of open space to do your own thing. The Jay Pritzker Pavilion is the main hub of the park and features an impressively sculpted bandshell that stands at over 100 feet tall, giving an impressive and surreal background to the many live entertainment shows that are put on during the year, including the millennium park summer music series. The Great Lawn is a perfect place to grab a seat while you watch your favorite band or enjoy some fresh air in the park to relax after a hard day's work. The Crown Fountain is one way to cool off on a hot day in downtown Chicago with ease. The larger-than-life video sculpture features a huge black granite reflecting pool positioned between two 50 foot tall glass brick towers playing digital videos. During the summer the display features Chicago locals playfully spouting water from their mouths as they cool off visitors to the fountain. As you can see, Millennium Park in Chicago is a great place to visit and has something to offer for everyone!

  3. SPORTS: Paying a visit to one of the most iconic baseball fields should be on everyone?s list that is a fan of America?s favorite pastime. While Chicago is host to many of the most well known sports teams in America including the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field, the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks at The United Center and the Chicago White Sox Guaranteed Rate Field, nothing quite measures up to the historical significance of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field. Nicknamed the Friendly Confines, Wrigley Field lays claim to being Major League Baseball?s second oldest ballpark.
