Magnificent Mile

Magnificent Mile is the main boulevard in Downtown Chicago. It is the ideal place from where you can start your little trip to the windy city because it ticks the most interesting and famous locations in the city. You will start from the water tower, pass the Trump Tower and finally reach Millennium Park.

Of course, in the meantime, you can also stop for a bit of shopping, something for which this street is even more famous.

Rivers Casino

Rivers Casino is a casino in Des Plaines, Illinois, United States, a suburb north of Chicago. It is minutes from O’Hare International Airport. Rivers Casino was opened on July 18, 2011. It is majority-owned by Churchill Downs Inc. and run by its minority owner, Rush Street Gaming. With games of all kinds, lots of slots, poker tables, blackjack and more. Before entering the casino you can try a few free slots to figure out what kinds of games are inside the casino.

Besides, Rivers Casino hosts the coolest gaming action in Chicago. Rivers Casino prides itself on the most slot games and the most table games in the entire city.

Millennium Park and The Cloud Gate

Millennium Park is for Chicago as is Central Park for New York. A green oasis that stretches over 99,000 square meters, surrounded by taller buildings. Construction of the park began in the late 1990s and was completed in 2004 with the aim of inaugurating the third millennium.

Surely you have seen a picture, a selfie or at least a movie scene with this sculpture, which looks like a huge bean bod. The Cloud Gate or The Bean was built between 2004 and 2006 and was designed by Anish Kapoor. The designer claims that he was inspired by the shape of the mercury in the liquid state and that he wanted the glossy surface to reflect the buildings around it.
Visitors have the opportunity to walk both around and under this bean, which has a height of about 4 meters. Bob grew up in Millennium Park.

About these would be 3 of the attractions that I say are worth visiting in a city break in Chicago or even a mini vacation.
