Worth a quick drive by if not anything else! While I was visiting near Chicago, I asked my traveling companion to drop me off at a red light so I could jump out and snap a quick picture! Worth the quick jog up the stairs in order to see this beauty! It sounds silly, but it looks exactly like the photos! Crisp, clean reflection.
Beautiful seasonal stop this Winter with music, ice skating, and beautiful decorations/displays. Can get busy in early evenings, and parking below in Millennium Garages is ample but will run you $30+. Best to walk or ride. There are coffee and food stops nearby on Michigan Ave. Great place for a stroll during daylight hours, and some evening festivity as well.
