Millennium Park

The mission of creating new parkland in Grant Park to transform the unsightly railroad tracks and parking lots that had long dotted the lakefront was conceived in 1997.

Among Millennium Park's prominent features are the Frank Gehry designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion, an outdoor concert venue, the interactive Crown Fountain by Jaume Plensa; the Lurie Garden, and Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate sculpture known as the bean.

Shea's Museum


Bill Shea's Route 66 Museum

Originally Shea's was a working gas station and garage but over the years something wonderful happened. It became a monument to Route 66 and those wonderful old time gas stations that once lined America's highways in the pre-Interstate era. Stop in, sit awhile, and visit with Bill himself.
