The Westin Michigan Avenue
is located on Chicago's famed Magnificent Mile, steps from Lake Michigan, award-winning restaurants and premier shopping. Plus, we're within walking distance from the Midwest's most popular tourist and leisure destination, Navy Pier. Get immersed in the unique culture of Chicago and let The Westin Michigan Avenue transcend your next visit to the Windy City.
Start your day with breakfast at Tempo Cafe
, then hop on board the Double Decker Bus/Trolley
bus tour. The tour will give you an overview of the city with the option of getting on and off at all the main points of interest, which includes the Millenium Park
and The Willis Tower
(formerly the Sears Tower). For a quick rush, stand on the new ledge that puts you 1,353 feet and 103 floors over the Windy City at the Willis Tower.
That's enough to get the tummy going for lunch, so walk a few blocks and enjoy Chicago's institution, Lou Mitchell's Restaurant and Bakery
. Hop back on the trolley and enjoy the rest of the afternoon at the Art Institute
and their new addition, the Modern Wing.
On the way back to the trolley stop, cut through the Millenium Park
, the 24.5 park featuring Cloud Gate (a.k.a. The Bean) and the interactive Crown fountain. If it was too long of a day, just order in a Gino's
pizza for dinner.
