World-class museums, artwork and a beach Chicago's Museum Campus was created in 1998 when the northbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive were re-routed slightly west to make it possible to link three of Chicago's world-class museums-the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium-in a 57-acre lakefront park located at the south end of the Monroe Street Harbor. Obviously, the museums are the big draw here. It's possible to spend several hours (or more) in each. But it's also possible to spend several hours strolling around this green space, enjoying the city views, watching the sailboats on Lake Michigan and admiring the outdoor sculptures that dot the area.

My favorite route to walk and/or jog. I prefer to take this route when there aren't too many people. Otherwise, great for a solo trip or with friends and family!
