Looking to enjoy our beautiful lakefront? Millennium Park is a wonderful place to find art and enjoy crisp Chicago fall weather. If the weather turns for the worse, nature lovers can seek shelter at the Lincoln Park or Garfield Park Conservatories! Lastly, if nature and wildlife are your cup of tea, head on over to Lincoln Park Zoo.


Chicago is home to some of the most famous buildings in the world. If you find yourself with time to tour the city, look to the Chicago Architecture Center for tour information. Want to learn more about one of Chicago’s very own architects, Frank Lloyd Wright? Look to the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust in Oak and Hyde Park.
