    The garden is big and very close Lake Michigan. Doesn't have too much structure. Walk around the Lake Michigan is interesting.

    Don't like the crowds in Millennium Park? Grant park is a perfect place to quietly roam through gardens, gaze at fountains and artwork, and reconnect with nature. Perfect for a summer night.

    The park is the largest green space in the city and the best place to see all the non-green spaces surrounding it. It hosts many events throughout the year and there are many more ways to get here.
