Worth adding to your walk around downtown Chicago. You will get a nice view of the river and buildings, plus the site seeing boats on the river. Great Photo spot that establishes your location.

The bridges over the river are iconic in Chicago. This one offers great vistas of the skyline and let's you absorb in your surroundings. If you're on Michigan, stroll across the bridge and soak it all in.

Great place to access the River Walk right off of Magnificent Mike. Bonus the river was jelly green from the St. Patrick’s festivities. Lots of shops and eateries in this area.

We stayed at Trump Tower for 3 days and we walked across this beautiful bridge at least a dozen times. Saw something new almost every time we crossed.
