If you’re looking to get away this summer but don’t want to simply lounge on the beach, visit the exciting city of Chicago. There are endless attractions and activities to explore in the city, and the city offers easy access to public transportation. Here are a few must-see attractions to check out while you’re visiting the city.
Blue Man Group
More than 17 million people throughout the world have seen the Blue Man Group, and in Chicago you can catch the live show. The Blue Man Group combines music, comedy and multimedia theatrics to create a one-of-a-kind experience. True to its name, the group features three men donned in black, with their bald heads completely covered in blue grease paint. The trio uses unexpected props, such as PVC tubes, to make music and fully encourages audience participation.
Millennium Park is a scenic park in the heart of the city on Michigan Avenue. The park features gorgeous landscaping and state-of-the-art architecture. Visitors can see the famous “bean,” an interactive metallic sculpture in which you can view a reflection of yourself and the city. And, in the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, park-goers can discover one of the most sophisticated concert venues while enjoying one of the many concerts held in the park during the summer.
Chicago Architecture Foundation Tours
The Chicago Architecture Foundation Tours can get a tour of the city from the Chicago River. A must for out-of-towners, the tour gives visitors details on historic and modern architectural styles by interpreting more than 50 buildings on the Chicago River.
