Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful things you can do in Chicago. In the last article, I mentioned four premier attractions that are often reviewed first. Then I gave you the short tour of three other places of interest in the city. Now we’re going to look at three more popular things to in The Windy City, Chicago, Illinois.
The American Writers Museum is one such place. The address for this museum is 180 North Michigan Avenue, and you will find it on the 2nd floor of the building in which it is located. It is said to include quite the interesting collection of writers in American History, and it’s not what you might expect. A lot of pop culture is included, which is a good thing, so the museum isn’t all collegiate or Smithsonian style. Personally, I find that refreshing because it covers the full cultural spectrum of American writers in history.
Navy Pier is said to be a great place to visit in Chicago. You’re right there on Lake Michigan, and there is plenty of entertainment in the area. You will see rides to enjoy, and you will be able to find plenty of great restaurants there, too. If you go to the South Dock, you can take a Navy Pier cruise boat ride. There are plenty of shops to visit in the area, too, and there is even an IMAX theater. Landshark Beer Garden and Dock Street Stage are two other points of interest in the 50+ acres surrounding Navy Pier.
Would you like to check out one of the oldest ballparks in America. I would like to see how close they would let me get to the ivy wall at Wrigley Field. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t even allow me on the warning track. It would be great just to catch a game here or take the tour and see it in person. Did you know that Wrigley Field was built in 1914? You will find this baseball park at 1060 West Addison Street.
That’s three more major attractions in Chicago IL. There is so much to do there. You could spend all day at a place like Navy Pier. The same goes for the Millennium Park area I mentioned in the last article. Chi Town is a lovely place to visit no matter what time of year you plan to go. Have an adventurous trip to Chicago, and don’t leave just yet. I’ve got more major attractions coming your way.
