Buckingham Fountain

NileGuide Expert Says:

Enjoy getting sprayed by the 150 foot plume on the hour. On summer nights, stop by while walking through Grant Park to take in a show of sorts: fountain sprays choreographed to 780 colored lights and recorded music by the Grant Park Symphony and Chorus. Our local has been treated to a surprise rendition (her surprise, anyway) of the 1812 Overture.

NileGuide Expert tip:

Make this a short rest stop after you visit the Art Institute and are exploring downtown. It is easily looked over, but should not be missed, especially at night.
