Grant Park stretches from the Museum Campus at Lake Shore Drive and Roosevelt Road all the way north to the Prudential building, with Columbus Drive on its west side and the lake on its east. At one time, this stretch of land was undeveloped and a prime target for builders. However, department store magnate Montgomery Ward did not want the lake view from his Michigan Avenue office obstructed, so he successfully lobbied the city to create Grant Park. The grounds bloom with rose gardens in the summer and the famous Buckingham Fountain springs to life. The Petrillo Band Shell is home to the Grant Park Music Festival and also hosts such events as Jazz Fest, Celtic Fest and Blues Fest. Perhaps the park is most famous for The Taste of Chicago, a culinary festival which happens every year in late June and early July.
There is no city park that can compare to Grant Park! This is coming from a Texan who travels around the 48 states. Have yet to seen anything close to the atmosphere, the outstanding views the park gives you of the city buildings. Who says you have to be in the south to get some southern hospitality, I get it in the Windy City!!!

Chicago is very diverse just like San Francisco~~ The skyline of Chicago is just breath taking.. I love the water.. If you like style and grace all wrap up in one well Chicago is the place for you!!!!!!!!!!! :0)

Institute of Chicago, Grant Park and State Street shopping are just steps away. A slightly longer walk reveals the ...
Although not one of the country's larger 'Chinatowns', the main drag on Wentworth Avenue is worth the brief side trip
from the Loop for the curious. You will find an assortment of shops, restaurants and butchers with skinned ducks ...
You probably will not find any actual artists in Artists' Cafe, as the Cafe is named for the Fine Arts
Building, where the restaurant resides. Artists' Cafe serves reliable diner fare, such as burgers, omelets and roast chicken. The ...
