City Guide

CHI City Guide

Wrigley Field
1060 W Addison St

Built in 1914 as Weeghman Park before being renamed Wrigley Field for former Cubs team owner and chewing gum magnate, William Wrigley, Jr. One of America’s classic ballparks, Wrigley is an experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list. If only the Cubs could take a page from the Red Sox’s recent success.

Millennium Park
201 E. Randolph St., between Michigan Ave. & Columbus Ave.

Millennium Park is a public park located in the Loop area of Chicago that was built to celebrate the beginning of the new millennium. The centerpiece of Millennium Park is Pritzker Pavilion, a bandshell designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. And don’t neglect the lovely Anish Kapoor Cloud Gate sculpture, which resembles a giant, highly polished, silver jellybean.

The Art Institute
111 S Michigan Ave.

Not only is it a mere hop, skip and jump from the Siskel Film Center, it also features a hella awesome collection of modern art, plus exhibits of African, Asian, Byzantine…oh, just enjoy several hours exploring, ’cause it’s worth it. Insider tip: buy your tickets online to avoid the up to 20 minute wait in the museum ticket line.

The Second City
1616 N Wells St.

According to their website, “The Second City specializes in sketch comedy and improv and has been delighting audiences for over 50 years.” Skip past the press release and just go. It’s a great place to discover new comic talent or enjoy some laughs courtesy of one of the Godfathers or Godmothers of comedy. Check out their schedule and book tickets in advance, as popular shows are known to sell out.
