Holidays To Chicago
It's Never Too Late To Book Your Holiday deals
Grey high-rises, top chefs, rocking fairs – the Windy City would sweep you away with its subtle urbane excellence. It's difficult to know what to look at first. Aerial structures are all over, from the steep, glass-floored Willis Tower to Frank Gehry's plunging silver Pritzer Pavilion to Frank Lloyd Wright's tinted glass Robie House. Fanciful public art spots the roads, so you're strolling down and bang, there's a symbolic Picasso figurine that's not only elegant to view, but you're also permitted to go right up and ascend it. For art museums, there’s plenty of choices: mimic showpieces at the huge Art Institute, multicolored paintings at the medium Museum of Mexican Art or visitor sketches at the tiny Intuit gallery. Chicago knows how to rock a carnival. Amid March and September, it holds about 200 parties. The forte is music. Blues Fest ushers half a million visitors to Grant Park to listen to guitar notes slide and bass lines roll, all for free, and Lollapalooza's is a three-day huge-celebration.

Some examples of this include making a giant heart beat in time to your own, opening a Chicago river drawbridge for a model train, running in a human sized hamster wheel and exploring a World War II German submarine. Other exhibits are a basketball court that includes a virtual instructor, the Science Storms exhibit, a 20 foot Tesla coil and a 30 foot avalanche disc.

One of the more newer places to visit in Chicago, it has fast become a favorite place for both tourists and locals. Free concerts and performances are held here all through the year. The Millenium Park includes a 5 acre garden and can be explored on a rented bicycle. One of the centerpieces of the park is the Crown Fountain that has images of Chicago citizens with water spouting from their mouths.
Located between towering architecture and the lakefront Grant Park covers over 300 acres of space and offers a host of activities including bike rides, softball and live music at the Grant Park Music Festival. The park is also known for its flashy spectacles such as the Buckingham Fountain that shoots out water every hour and public art such as the Agora art installation that has hundred tall headless figures that are nine feet tall and are faced in multiple directions.

This is one of Chicago’s iconic sculptures and is commonly known as ‘The Bean’ due to its bean like shape. Its unique design and shiny exterior provides distorted reflections that make for great photo opportunities. All you need to do is to make your way around and under it to enjoy all the reflections on its every curve. At nighttime the bean turns black and the only thing that could define its shape are the city lights.
The Magnificient Mile
The Magnificient Mile is the heart of Chicago’s dining scene and is a great place to get some shopping done. It gets its name from the fact that it has 1 mile of stores starting on Michigan Avenue and heading North to Oak Street.
