There were boats up and down the pier that offered lunch and dinner cruises.
From the pier we walked across town. This is the Chicago River.
Looking across the drawbridge.
We walked through the park and there was a huge amphitheater.
Last stop of the day was the Art Institute of Chicago. It is one of the nation's top art institutions, with one of the world's largest collections-more than 225,000 works in all, shown among ten departments. Two of American art's most recognizable paintings are here: Grant Wood's American Gothic (the artists dentist posed for the pitchfork-holding farmer, and the artist's sister for the spinster daughter at his side) and Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, his famous all-night diner scene. This museum has the largest membership of any U.S. art museum.
