Top 10 In Our Area to Shop-Dine-Fun

Millennium Park/Maggie Daley Park

Directly across Michigan Avenue from our office is the spectacular Millennium Park. It is a center for music, architecture, dining, and landscape design. Take a stroll around the park and explore the Crown Fountain where kids like to play in the water during summer months. Be sure to take a selfie under the Cloud Gate Sculpture (aka “The Bean”). Watch a movie, catch a concert, or do some exercise offered at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in the summer months.

Travel across the elevated walkway and head to Maggie Daley Park where there are sectioned playgrounds for kids, a rock climbing wall, bike path, and ice skating ribbon (in the winter).

Millenium Park Art Institute

Visit their website at www.artic.edu/ to explore everything the museum has to offer.
