  • Built in the late 1860s, these two structures, designed by William Boyington, were among the few buildings to survive the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
  • This landmark is just steps away from Loyola's Water Tower Campus on Pearson Street.
  • Miraculously saved from the Great Chicago Fire, this is a distinctive landmark of Old Chicago in the heart of the Magnificent Mile.
  • During the cold winter in Chicago is the beat place to spend some hours enjoying sales in good shops and great taste and fresh meal in a large list of restaurants
  • One of my fav Chicago landmarks. Wish they'd do more with the inside though. Maybe some history of the tower and not some lame art exhibit.
  • White Castle's motif was inspired by this famous water tower.
  • Visitors get 10% off at Macy's. Just go to the info desk on level 6.
  • Hang out and look at the art exhibit and warm up!
  • There is an art museum inside, make sure you check it out!
  • Make sure you're friendly to Security ;)

  • Great to see some historical architecture in the middle of town. They should put a historical exhibition inside rather than the current gallery which seemed a bit out of place.
  • Nice to walk by, worth about a 4 block detour. There is a free photo gallery inside.
