Of all the activities we partake in, I recommend the ultra clean and well laid out Lincoln Park Zoo and Conservatory, Money Museum (housed inside the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago), Garfield Park Conservatory, Jane Hull House Museum, Crown Fountain and Park (see below), Chrome Bean in Millennium Park (most incredible piece of sculpture I have ever seen), Millennium Park (Shown above, daily and nightly mostly free outdoor entertainment venue), Magnificent Mile of Shopping, National Museum of Mexican Art, Chicago Cultural Center, and Navy Pier (hosts fireworks twice a week in the dark skies over Lake Michigan).
