Visit the Art Institute of Chicago
If you want to see some of the most remarkable collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art, the Art Institute of Chicago is the place to be. Home to more than 300,000 works from every corner of the world, the institute showcases pieces of art dating as back as the 17th century. If you want to explore everything that the Institute has to offer, consider taking a guided tour as well as audio guides which go for about seven bucks per visitor. (Note that the guided tour is covered in the admission fee). You can access the Art Institute of Chicago through the Adams/Wabash “L” train station.
Chicago is famous for its skyline and the best place to experience it is the 360 Chicago observation deck. Located on the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center, 360 Chicago gives you access to the expansive views of the city. If the weather is clear, you can view Chicago’s skyline 55 miles in any direction. While you’re at 360, be sure to test TILT, a mechanized observation room that “tilts” you over the bust North Michigan Avenue. The admission fee at 360 Chicago is $18 for adults and $12 for kids. You will part with an extra $5 for the TILT experience.
While this is just a tip of the iceberg, a visit to any of these places will ensure that your honeymoon in Chicago starts on the right footing.http://laguarida.org/chicago-the-perfect-wedding-getaway/http://laguarida.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/download-6.jpghttp://laguarida.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/download-6.jpgFamily
