Life is an adventure itself. The spirit of life consists of meeting new people, experiencing new things, and exploring new places. We only live once, so we need to enjoy and make the most of our lives. If you are considering travel soon, let’s show you why Chicago should be your next destination.
Chicago, like many other American cities, is beautiful because of its walkable avenues; however, what characterizes it the most is the presence of artistic monuments in the streets. Discover an amazing urban collection in the Sculpture Art Tour in the Loop1. This impressive tour takes you to iconic places across Chicago’s Loop. You’ll see Millenium Park and its famous “Bean” sculpture, which was originally named Cloud Gate, made by British Indian Artist Anish Kapoor, who intended to reflect and distort the city’s skyline. Moving a few blocks from there, you’ll find the Chicago Picasso, an interactive sculpture for which Picasso’s inspiration remains a mystery, though some say it was inspired by his dog. Another piece you’re going to see is Miro’s, The Sun, the Moon and One Star; a 39 feet womanly shaped sculpture that has earned it nickname of “Miss Chicago”.
Now, if you’re more into food and hype places, the private gastronomic tour Frida & Friends: Food and Art in Pilsen2is definitely for you. This walking tour takes you to Pilsen, one of the “Coolest Neighborhoods Around the World” according to Forbes, that is known for its colorful streets and culinary traditions based on Latin Culture.this tour isavailable in English, French or Dutch. Or consider taking the Sip History: Chicago Cocktail Adventure, where Amy Bizzarri3 -author of 111 Places Chicago– shares with you her favorite cocktail bars while she tells you the story of how, after the end of prohibition, cocktail lounges began to sprout up across the country.
Finally, for a more familyfriendly atmosphere, check out Amy’s Chicago Kids Treasure Hunt! Chicago Loop, a wonderful treasure hunt in which you’re going to discover a lot of fun and representative places in the Chicago Loop. Visiting a bronze cow, climbing into a piece of art, and crossing the emblematic moveable bridges of the Chicago River, the guide leads you through an adventure in which you need to take a photo of each treasure hidden in the streets of Chicago’s iconic Loop to complete the experience.
