    Magnificent views of the skyline

    Chicago skyline from the Adler Planetarium

    Head out to the Adler Planetarium if you want to get a magnificent view of the Chicago skyline. If you're planning one of the short skyline cruises on the lake to get a good view of the skyline, this may be a good substitution. I did both and found the photo oportunity at the Planetarium better than the cruise from departed from the Navy Pier.

    You will get another good view of the Chicago skyline and lakefront. Great place to learn about our galaxy, outer space and other planets. I really like this place.

    The IMAX shows at the planetarium are just fantastic. The planetarium's exhibits are a must, and the views around the site are breathtaking.

    While browsing downtown, we came across a small Italian barber shop and out by the street was this statue of the "BLUES BROTHERS" made of hard rubber. Below are our photos with the BLUES!
    Enjoy it!

    This is one of America's most impressive planetariums. It also has a good museum devoted to the early science of astronomy.
