Visit Millennium Park

Those include events dedicated to house, gospel, and jazz music, drawing a diverse group of attendees to the park.

Formerly the Sears Tower, Willis Towers stands over 100 stories tall and several hundred feet taller than the Eiffel Tower. The tower’s Skydeck allows visitors to ascend to the top of the building for a view of the city. On certain days, Skydeck has limited reservations for breakfast with this spectacular view.
See a Play
With its own theater district, Chicago provides plenty of options for plays and musicals. The city has touring productions, as well as originals plays, shown regularly in its theaters. On occasion, it has also been known to do a few test runs of shows before they move to New York.
