TOP 10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT CHICAGO IN 2016
#10 – Willis Tower/formerly known as Sears Tower, is still the tallest in the United States, at 1,450 feet. For awesome 360-degree views of the city, head to the 103rd-floor Skydeck. From here you will also be able to access The Ledge, a series of enclosed glass boxes jutting from the Skydeck and providing a fascinating view straight down to the ground.
#9 – Field Museum is home to all sorts of cultural treasures, fossils, and artifacts, as well as a myriad of interactive exhibits. Make no bones about it, this natural history museum is one of the best in the country.
#8 – Navy Pier is home to a variety of attractions on the waterfront – for kids as well as adults – one of Chicago’s most visited attractions. An added bonus of spending time at the Pier: the breathtaking city views.
#7 – Museum of Science & Industry houses more than 800 exhibits and is a Chicago must-see, especially for families. Make sure you arrive rested, since it takes a whole day just to hit the top attractions.
#6 – Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago’s second most popular attraction after Navy Pier, while small compared to lots of top US Zoos, is a leading light for ape research, and its park setting, duck ponds, historic café and landmark red barn endear it to all who visit. #5 – Magnificent Mile, a glitzy strip of stores and striking buildings runs for, you guessed it, about a mile along North Michigan Avenue consisting of famed department stores like Neiman Marcus, as well as high-end boutiques such as Tiffany & Co, and popular chain stores.
#4 – The Art Institute of Chicago, housed in a massive Beaux Arts edifice with an impressive Modern Wing by Renzo Piano, has some 260,000 works from around the globe, and is famous for its Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works and touring shows.
#3 – John G. Shedd Aquarium, houses some 25,500 marine animals representing 2,100 different species that include amphibians, fish, and aquatic mammals.
