What people are saying:

Located in Grant Park looks like a wedding cake. As a child, during hot Chicago summers my family would go in the evenings to watch the colored lights water show. It was fantastic! I loved it as a child and still love it!

    Not Fountain-ing at Our Visit

    Due to COVID, Buckingham Fountain was not fountain-ing at the time of our visit. Sad face. Still, it is a GREAT place to get photos of the city skyline and we really enjoyed our walk.

    Beautiful fountain

    During the day or at night, Buckingham Fountain is beautiful. This historical landmark was Chicago #1 attraction before the “Bean” was built. Located in the middle of the parks, close to Lake Michigan...
