If only all cities could have a park as centrally located and beautifully maintained as Grant Park. I'd gladly take a walk through the park, with its stunning skyline views, over waiting for a bus or taking the El. Maybe my only criticism of the park is its use of the lake; even though Buckingham Fountain is across the street from Lake Michigan, there's no meaningful connection to the lakefront.

There's a reason why Grant Park is called "Chicago's Front Lawn." Take in some of the best views of the skyline, and check out the spectacular Buckingham Fountain. If you're looking to get touristy in Chicago, this is a great place to start.

Beautiful park to take a walk and spend time with family. Also very romantic by the fountain at night, I know of several couples that have gotten engaged there.
