Cloud Gate And Its Surrounding Area In Chicago, Illinois Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The famous Cloud Gate Sculpture stands on the AT&T Plaza in Millennium Park Chicago. It is a popular feature of the park as are the surrounding sights. A more natural visitor attraction in Millennium Park is the Lurie Garden which was designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd, Piet Oudolf and Robert Israel. Covering a total of five acres the garden honours the motto of Chicago 'Urbs in Horto' which means city in a garden. This motto stems from the city's beginnings as flat marshy land from which today's Chicago emerged. Not a sight, but an attraction for visitors just the same, is the McDonald's Cycle Center which has everything for those wishing to cycle around Millennium Park, including cycle hire and tours, cycle repair, lockers for belongings and showers. One of the sights cyclists are sure to visit is the Cloud Gate Sculpture which is pictured on this acrylic fridge magnet from World Wide Gifts.
Recreation In Chicago, Illinois
The Millennium Park is not the only place for recreation in Chicago. For those wanting to see animals there are two zoos in the area, Lincoln Park Zoo, and Brookfield Zoo. Both zoos are home to a multitude of creatures including the ever popular monkeys. At Brookfield visitors can take in the Dolphinarium whilst at Lincoln Park the swan boats on the lake are a popular attraction. Away from the zoos, for those wanting a magnificent view of the city of Chicago there is the Sky Deck at Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower. Those who are particularly brave can step out onto the ledge where the glass boxes extend four feet out from the Sky Deck at a height of one thousand three hundred and fifty three feet from the ground. It may take nerve to do this but it does not take any nerve to visit one of Chicago's most popular attractions, the impressive Could Gate Sculpture which is pictured on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
