    Another must see. Stop while shopping to take in the sight from every angle. It's one of the oldest pieces of architecture really well done.

    This is the water tower structure not the shopping mall. A small art gallery is a can't-miss inside. One of 2 structures to survive the Great Chicago Fire. Best parking nearby under Water Tower Place.

    Nothing on the history of the tower when you go inside. Missing a trick here.

    Go in and wander around if it's hot out. It's free but not very big.

    Miraculously saved from the Great Chicago Fire, this is a distinctive landmark of Old Chicago in the heart of the Magnificent Mile.

    One of my fav Chicago landmarks. Wish they'd do more with the inside though. Maybe some history of the tower and not some lame art exhibit.
