    Buckingham Fountain is one of the nation's most famous fountains, a public icon of Chicago and the center piece of Grant Park. Try to rent a bike to wander around the park.

    This fountain is a great experience to see, especially on a warm summer day. This fountain is famous, it has been in many shows and movies. At night it lights up into different colors.

    Oooo...ahhh....

    ...is Buckingham Fountain, all aglow on a summer night. Every few minutes, the colors of the lighting will change, and a huge spurt of water will shoot towards the sky. Just beautiful!

    Grant Park waterfall

    Located in Grant Park is this amazing waterfall. Even better is to visit at night when the colour spectrum goes wild!!!
