Chicago had all the things that I expected from a major city. With top-notch museums and enriching tourist attractions, Chicago is full of energy. I started my journey by deciding to explore the Millennium Park on the very first day. The park has its physical appearance in the bend just north of “The Art Institute of Chicago”, with the area of 24.5 acre space which is used to display case cutting-edge art, architecture and landscape. Basically, I visited the park to see the Crown Fountain and Cloud Gate.
The next destination was Lincoln Park it is a home to dozens of species like zebras, hippos, and sloths. I checked-out the gorillas sprawling in the Regenstein Center for African Apes, and headed to the Kovler Seal Pool to get closer with harbor seals. While my visit, I appreciated all of the large mammal species found here. On the next moment I decided to visit the Navy Pier, it’s a family-friendly entertainment place. I catch up a show at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. The Navy Pier’s picturesque water views are just amazing.
On the third day of holiday, I made my way, to The Magnificent Mile. The portion of Michigan Avenue- stretches between Lake Shore Drive and the Chicago River. I was surprised to found luxury retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s and Lord Taylor and Neiman Marcus. It is a home to several top-quality eateries and luxury hotels like The Drake, the Inter Continental Chicago Magnificent Mile. To explore the natural history, I visited the Field Museum. Some of the most popular parts of the museum are Inside Ancient Egypt exhibit, the Abbott Hall of Conservation. I spent some quality time with SUE, it’s a 42 feet long from nose to tail and possesses near about 58 terrifying teeth.
As Chicago’s major attraction is its skyline and so I decided to visit one of the best places to experience it i.e. at the 360 CHICAGO Observation Deck. It is also known by the name of John Hancock Observatory. On the day I visited was a clear day, so I got expansive views of the city. In a short line, I can say the abundance of windows and better views make this attraction a worth visiting one. While traveling on a Chicago Architecture River Cruise, I got a good overview of the city’s layout, gained historical insights and astonishing sights all about the well-known structures among the tourist like The Wrigley Building, the Leo Burnett Building and the Fulton House.
My overall experience towards Chicago is that, it’s a tourist spot with full of world-famous attractions that are worth each and every penny. I didn’t have a chance to dig deep into my pockets to enjoy an array of wonderful and reasonably priced experiences while on my holidays in Chicago. In Chicago there are enormous number of places and things to do where you don’t even have to give a penny. I got the most out of my trip to Chicago.
