This was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel the Hyatt, and really liked the architectural design. The location was ideal in the heart of the city and tucked in below all the skyscrapers.

It is the busiest bridge in town. It connects downtown Chicago with the north side. Officially it is called the DuSable Bridge in honor of the first settler of Chicago (so actually a founder of it: black Haitian).

This iconic bridge has to be walked, and stopped on, to enjoy the water views both up and down the river. More and more entertainment choices are happening below.

Wonderful old bridge with some amazing masonry, but also a great place to view the river and some of the really historic early skyscrapers. Easy access from here to the river walk.

There are plenty of mass transit ways to get there as well as an Uber. Also plenty to do shopping experience wise and dining.

I'd use public transportation to get downtown instead of trying to drive and park downtown. And there is too much traffic to really see anything while you're driving.
