    What to See During Your Chicago Vacation?

    Millennium Park is one of the top sights in Chicago. Originally planned at the turn of the millennium, the public green space was opened in July 2004. Millennium Park is located directly on Lake Michigan and invites you to take a walk in the warm season and ice skating in the winter. Besides numerous restaurants, there are works of famous architects to admire. The most famous sculpture is Cloud Gate, nicknamed "the bean" because of its shape.

    The Willis Tower is the tallest building in Chicago. Elevators take visitors to the 103rd floor visitor platform, which is 1,350 feet above the ground. From here you can enjoy a phenomenal view. On a clear day you can see up to 50 miles away.

    The Navy Pier juts out into Lake Michigan about a kilometer away. Built in 1916, the pier is one of the city's entertainment centers. Numerous rides, playgrounds, shops and restaurants are located on Navy Pier.
