Grant Park

Often referred to as “Chicago’s front yard,” Grant Park spans over 300 acres of beautiful greenery, impressive performance venues and famous artwork.

Located between Lake Michigan and the The Loop, Chicago’s central business district, Grant Park is a convenient place of play and relaxation for residents and tourists alike. While you’re there, don’t miss the following hot spots:

  • Millennium Park, home to Cloud Gate (famously known as “The Bean”) and Jay Pritzker Pavilion

  • Buckingham Fountain, one of the largest fountains in the world

  • The Art Institute of Chicago, one of the oldest and most expansive museums in the US

  • Museum Campus, the site of Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum of Natural History, and the Shedd Aquarium

Combine a trip to Grant Park with a ride along Lakefront Trail South or Lakefront Trail North located along the park’s eastern border.
