Chicago is full of incredible attractions that appeal to all ages, genders and groups; and Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago is in the heart of it all. One of the best things to do once travelers arrive in Chicago is go straight to the top of it and get a good look. Both the John Hancock Tower and the Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, offer observation decks from top floors. For new visitors or even for longtime residents, the views will take your breath away.
Once you get a feel for the city’s layout, travelers should make their way to historic Navy Pier. Home to the world’s first Ferris wheel, it has since been updated and renovated with dozens of games, rides and eateries. You can embark on a cruise that takes you up the shores of Lake Michigan or can enjoy a show at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Once you have had their fill of Navy Pier, venture into one of the dozens of incredible museums in the city. Many world-class museums call Chicago home and they include the Field Museum of Natural History, the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium — all within walking distance of each other. Other museums include the Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry.
On a beautiful day in Chicago, travelers should be encouraged to get outside and enjoy. A great place to start is at the hotel’s own large river walk plaza before embarking on an incredible boat tour. Wendella Boat Tours dock at the hotel and offer incredible 75- and 90-minute tours of the city along the Chicago River. Should guests prefer to remain on land they should stroll through one of the city’s incredible green spaces. Whether those include a large park — like Millennium Park or Grant Park, or a long stroll up the beach along Lake Michigan, guests will feel like they are miles away from an urban center. Finish off your day in the park with a visit to the free Lincoln Park Zoo.
