Chicago Museum Campus
Chicago Museum Campus - Chicago Hotels .com

Located in downtown, Chicago Museum Campus is a 57 acre lake front park that serves as home to the famous Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and Adler Planetarium.

The design was visualized by Daniel Burnham, an architect and city planner who also designed Union Station- the famous Chicago landmark. Burnham's plan turned the asphalt areas into green spaces. Chicago's most popular water-front attractions thus got linked by public parks in 1998. If you visit in summers, you can find a lot of people idling time away at these open green spaces.

Find rare artifacts at the Field Museum; see the beluga sharks at the Shedd Aquarium or take a trip to outer space in 3-D at the Adler Planetarium. You can spend your entire vacation at the Campus without getting bored. Many tourists come to Chicago and head straight to this campus which sees more than 4 million visitors yearly.

If you wish to continue with your sightseeing, go and see the Petrillo Music Shell at Grant Park located nearby.

For dinner, you may want to go over to Opera (312-461-0161) and order from a Chinese menu. An elegant ambience, trendy and stylish interiors make Opera a desirable spot for your dining experience.
 
Tantrum is a trendy bar in the neighborhood that you may want to stop by. You will enjoy the creative drinks, a frat house ambience and live entertainment.

Of all the many nice hotels in the neighborhood, Congress Plaza Hotel offers good value for your money. Good service, excellent food and a prime location will make your stay at this hotel enjoyable. On the more indulgent side, you can try The Fairmont Chicago, a 4 star hotel located near Grant Park.
