After walking the entire city I easily decided Millennium Park is hands-down Chicago's best attribute. I imagine the weather's not always as perfect as it was on my visit, but in the summer that attraction is unbeatable. (Ok, Central Park has it beat, but we don't like to rub it in.) From an inexplicably enamoring bean to the massive amphitheater that provides families with free, outdoor activities, and a garden that rivals NYC's high line, this is the place to soak in Chicago's culture and architecture. Because the soul of a big city is that place you can find peace from the bustle and chaos but still marvel at the vastness and view.
