What travelers say:

Less than ten minutes from Millennium Park along Lake Michigan, you can also reach another landmark in Chicago, the Buckingham Fountain (Buckin gham Fountain). The retro sculptures and marble in the fountain pool give it a painting-like elegance. Every night, there is a light music fountain show. Amazingly, the water column in the center of the fountain can be sprayed to 40 or 50 meters high, with the bottom of the colorful light projection, like the fireworks in the night sky.
