    I'm just loading pictures and place holders until I can get back and add some text. Come back in November and see what's been added.

    Buckingham Fountain at sunset

    We sat by the fountain during the Taste of Chicago to enjoy the views (and our cheesecake!)
    Only disappointment that during "The Taste" they shut the lights off the fountain at 9:00 pm.

    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.

    Grant Park waterfall

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