As sad as I was to move out here, I do have to say that Chicago ended up being a really awesome city. It’s clean, easy to get in and out of, there’s tons to eat and most of all so much amazing art and architecture everywhere.
In particular, I immediately fell in love with the Lincoln Park neighborhood. And I make it a point to bring friends and family here whenever they are visiting.
With winter break coming to an end, I took my nieces by the Lincoln Park Zoo and Nature Boardwalk this past weekend. They have an outdoor ice skating rink here during the winter months and thought they would enjoy it.
In case you were wondering, its $5 for admission and $5 for skate rentals.
It’s right outside of the zoo (which is free) and in between the barns.
In this area, my favorite part is the boardwalk. It’s such a wonderful walk from where you can enjoy nature (obviously) but also have a view of the city.
But most of all, there is an art piece here that I absolutely LOVE!
It is designed by Studio Gang Architects and its honeycomb structure is so simple yet so beautiful all at once.
Every time I go here (and trust me I’ve gone A LOT just in the past two months alone), I go insane taking pictures. I never get bored!
They all turn out so cool no matter what angle is captured.
What I love is that the fiberglass panels emit various kinds of light depending on the location of the sun and makes the structure appear different throughout the day.
Are you ready for this next one which was taken during the sunset?
Incredible isn’t it?
I’ve seen this place being used as a classroom as well as a backdrop for engagement photo sessions. Not to mention, selfies here turn out pretty great too. (You’re welcome!)
Selfie stick needed for this kind of picture (or someone willing to lay down on the ground).
Are there any art pieces in your city that you never get bored of?
