    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.

    During the cold winter in Chicago is the beat place to spend some hours enjoying sales in good shops and great taste and fresh meal in a large list of restaurants

    White Castle's motif was inspired by this famous water tower.

    Built in the late 1860s, these two structures, designed by William Boyington, were among the few buildings to survive the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

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

    This landmark is just steps away from Loyola's Water Tower Campus on Pearson Street.

    Visitors get 10% off at Macy's. Just go to the info desk on level 6.

    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.
