Michigan Avenue or the Magnificent Mile is just that.... wide, beautiful and interesting..... We didn't see it all, but noticed that compared to NYC there is MUCH less honking of horns..... really makes it more enjoyable to stroll down the street......

On our last morning, before taking our flight home we walked to the Navy Pier..... named of course, because of formerly being used as a training facility. But, currently it is the home to shops, restaurants and entertainment of all sorts..... You can rent bicycles or Segways, take a boat cruise, ice skate, ride a roller coaster with a view or just watch people.... We didn't have NEAR long enough, but we enjoyed our visit.

Amazing public sculpture in Millenium Park....fun to watch people interacting with it ...
|If you look closely at the bean itself I am wearing light orange and in the middle... such an interesting sculpture...|

Architecture in Chicago is definitely a highlight.... some of these photos came from walking around the town, but some were from our architecturally based river cruise....

|Entrance to Millenium Park (One of Many)|
Will have to return to see all the treasures here... WOW! The entrance we used was very close to Millenium Park.... reasonably priced... we found it to be a wonderful museum but we had a little difficulty following the map.....
