    I prefer the one in bilbao, Spain (Guggenheim). However, do not miss it, it is gorgeous.

    Before your trip to Chicago, look up which free events are taking place here and make time to attend! They are almost always excellent!

    Open space, community feel it adds when concerts & movie in the park events are happening. It's Chicago's cultural hub.

    Check out the concerts or movies in the park over the summer!! They usually start at 6 or 6:30 and last until 8ish. Bring a blanket and a bottle of wine and enjoy!

    If you're in the lawn, sit as close as you can. In the back, you can't hear the music over people clinking their glasses and getting publicly drunk.
