Chicago is a beautiful city with over 8,100 acres of green spaces, 26 miles of lakefront, almost 50 natural areas and 580 parks. In the Spring Chicago pops with color in the flower beds along the Michigan Avenue also known as the Magnificent Mile.
Even the median down Chicago’s Magnificent Mile is lined with flower beds!
The planters at the John Hancock Observatory entrance are filled with alyssum and pansies. The views from a thousand feet up are not to be missed when visiting Chicago.
The Water Tower and the pumping station are the only 2 buildings to survive the Great Fire of Chicago of 1871.
The InterContinental Chicago is only hotel in Chicago with an entrance on Michigan Ave. They filled window boxes with pussy willows, yellow tulips and pink hydrangea all around the building.
When you are in Chicago be sure to take time to enjoy the flowers throughout the city and on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.
