Chicago - The Loop

Millennium Park
Welcome to Chicago!

Our first two nights in this city, we stayed in the Chicago Loop section. This city is relatively clean, inviting and we feel safe, but at night we retreated to our room, plus we were tired from walking. There are four things must see and do in this section in my opinion namely, Millennium Park, Willis Tower, Buckingham Fountain and do an Architectural river tour (tomorrow).

In the morning we explored Millennium Park for its famous “Bean” then to Willis Tower, we went back to the “bean” in the afternoon and then explored the Buckingham Fountain. Enough walking for one day, my feet hurt so bad!

The Willis Tower’s balconies are suspended 1,353 feet above the ground and jut out 4 feet from the building. They’re actually more like boxes than balconies, with transparent walls, floor and ceiling. Visitors are treated to unobstructed views of Chicago from the building’s west side and a heart-stopping vista of the street and Chicago River below – for those brave enough to look straight down.
