Explore Chicago – Millennium Park

Besides our great theatre, there’s so much more to do in the great world-class city of Chicago.  One of my favorite places in the city is Millennium Park.  Check it out:

Millennium Park is an award-winning center for art, music, architecture and landscape design. From free concerts in the Frank Gehry-designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion, to Jaume Plensa‘s interactive Crown Fountain, Millennium Park has something for everyone. Tour the Lurie Garden; or have your photo taken by Anish Kapoor’s hugely popular Cloud Gate sculpture. Admission is FREE. For more information, visit http://www.millenniumpark.org.
