Welcome to watchmojo.com. I’m your host Alex and if you’re traveling to the city of Chicago, here are the top five places you’ve got to check out.
Number one, Lincoln Park Zoo. This 35-acre animal attraction in Lincoln Park makes the—of attractions not only because it’s entertaining but also because it’s free.
Number two, the John Hancock Observatory. Make a trip to the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center and discover a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline. It is the third tallest skyscraper in Chicago and the fourth tallest in the United States.
Number three, the Sears Tower. The Sears Tower is the tallest building in North America by measurements from the ground to its roof. Completed in early 1973, high speed elevators climb a 110 stories to the observation deck.
Number four, Millennium Park. First planned in 1997 as a great new park land in Grand Park and transformed unattractive railroad trucks and parking lots, Millennium Park has evolved into the most significant Millennium project in the word. Located in downtown Chicago, the 24.5-acre park is an unprecedented center of world class art, music, architecture, and landscape design.
Number five, the Art Institute of Chicago. This is the best all around art museum in the city and one of the finest art collections in the world. Exhibits included distinguished collections of prints and drawings and internationally acclaimed collections of impressionists and false impressionist’s paintings, sculptures and photographs.
