Chicago Day 4: Buckingham Fountain

After our lunch in Chinatown, we took Uber to Buckingham Fountain, located in the center of Grant Park.


Buckingham Fountain is one of the largest fountains in the world.


The four sea horses around the fountain symbolizes the four states; Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana which border Lake Michigan.


The fountain itself represents Lake Michigan.


A rose garden in the surroundings.


Also in the surroundings, a statue with a fish. Does it symbolize a fisherman?



A modern art of entangled wire.


The Bowman at the entrance of Grant Park, with the missing bow and arrow.


Abraham Lincoln Memorial on the northwest of the fountain.


We then walked to a Hop On Hop Off stop to catch a ride back to the Water Tower stop on Michigan Ave. We caught a mesmerizing sight of the sun breaking out from some dark clouds while on the HOHO bus.
