This beautiful fountain is just one more pleasure to be found in the downtown/lakefront area. From May to October each year, the fountain sprays its giant waterjet up in the air, so that it can be seen blocks away. It's a favorite meeting place during the Taste of Chicago when the crowds can be overwhelming at Millenium Park, and it certainly is a favorite of children. But perhaps the best time to experience the fountain is on a summer evening when the illumination of the fountain highlights its beauty, on a romantic horse and carriage ride through the city. Don't miss this free monument to beauty when you are visiting Chicago.
