What To Expect

Cloud Gate, known affectionately as “The Bean” debuted in Millennium Park in 2006. Designed by famed Indian artist, Anish Kapoor, this giant, stainless steel masterpiece has become one of the most famous symbols of Chicago arts and culture.

The Chicago municipal Christmas tree has been a Windy City tradition since 1913. The tree is locally grown and decorated with thousands of lights, lit for the first time in an annual lighting ceremony.

The Marshall Field’s Christmas Windows have been cheering up the sidewalks of State Street since the 1940s. These playful, holiday-themed displays draw crowds from all over the midwest with their elaborate theming and animatronics.

The Loop is Chicago’s bustling business district, named for its location within the rectangular convergence of multiple “El” train tracks.

The Magnificent Mile lights are a twinkling sensation in the downtown shopping district. The illumination kicks off with an annual festival and parade, with thousands of lights lining Michigan Avenue and beyond.

The Chicago Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places June 6, 1979, and was listed as a Chicago Landmark January 28, 1983. The distinctive Chicago Theatre marquee, “an unofficial emblem of the city”, appears frequently in film, television, artwork, and photography.
