    Great place to walk the puppy. 🐶 On a mild mid-November Saturday , there were two hot dog stands 🌭still open and the water taxis⛴ were still running.

    Area containing the Field museum, the aquarium and the planetarium. Some good views of the city, especially from just outside the planetarium.

    Most entrances to Museum Campus through Grant Park is shut for Lollapalooza. You can cross over by walking over to Columbus by way of Roosevelt where you'll find access to Museum Campus.

    57 acres of greenery and walking paths surrounded by world-class museums. The statue of Nicholas Copernicus is actually a replica of a famous 19th century Polish sculpture.
