Seeing Millnieum Park is an obvious must but seeing it for sunrise is a total bonus. We basically had the place to ourselves to enjoy the photo ops in peace and watch the sun rise over the city.
A stroll down the riverwalk is the perfect way to relax after spending the day in the city hustle and bustle. Also, there are plenty of good restaurants to chose from and most have great patio seating with views.
In our opinion this is the best photo op in the city. A phenomenal skyline right behind a gorgeous fountain. What more can your Instagram fans ask for? Another spot we hit during sunrise and had the place to ourselves.
Milton Lee Olive Park-
This might not be one of the obvious tourist locations, but one of our favorite spots. Another peaceful park overlooking Lake Michigan, The Navy Pier and the skyline. Def don't forget your camera when you go here.
Definitely not our favorite attraction, but it wouldn't be Chicago without stopping by. We always enjoy a quick ride on the Ferris wheel and it definitely has some amazing views of the city and Lake Michigan.
Shop Miracle Mile-
Like most big cities, Chicago delivers when it comes to shopping. All of your favorite stores right next to each other. You could spend at least an entire week exploring all the shopping here.
