It's always refreshing to take some time out and sit on one of the many benches in Grant Park by the gorgeous Buckingham Fountain. It's a perfect spot for people watching, and it just so happens to also be the home of Lollapalooza.

Whether you're here for one of the many summer festivals or are just looking for a great spot to take a walk and look out over Lake Michigan, Grant Park is a beautiful spot to take in the beauty of Chicago. Okay, maybe most days, with the exception of Lolla.

We are lucky enough to live in a city that has tons of amazing parks, but Grant Park is by far one of my favorites. Not only is it absolutely massive and right on the water, but its view of the sky-line is absolutely breathtaking. Plus the city puts on tons and tons of events in the park for us to enjoy!

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.
