Top 6 Chicago Charter Bus Destinations

#1. Millennium Park

Millennium Park is at the heart of Chicago. They have it all on this sprawling green space, including the infamous Cloud Gate. Also called “The Bean” because it looks like a gigantic bean shaped mirror. The tourist attraction draws 4.75 million visitors every year.

Right next to the Bean is the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Watch a concert or join in for a yoga workout in the park.

Also to the south of Millennium Park is the famous Art Institute of Chicago. The iconic bronze lions still guard the Institute’s treasure trove of artwork.

#2. The Art Institute of Chicago

If you want to immerse yourself amidst iconic art masterpieces, the Art Institute of Chicago is an absolute must. One of the oldest and largest art museums in the country, the beautiful Art Institute houses some of the most famous works of all time.

Experience quite possibly the most well-known example of pointillism with Georges Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, one of Picasso’s best works in The Old Guitarist, Vincent Van Gogh’s Self Portrait, or absorb iconic pieces of popular culture in Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks and Grant Wood’s American Gothic. With over 300,000 works of art in it’s permanent collection, just about anyone will find awe-inspiring works to connect with.

Located in Chicago’s Grant Park, a visit to the Art Institute can easily be an all-day affair, with incredible paintings from all over the world, stunning photography, and more. Even the architecture of the museum itself is a must-see. And if you’re not an art person, it’s worth visiting just to recreate one of the most memorable scenes in the iconic movie, Ferris Buehler’s Day Off.

The Art Institute of Chicago is one of America’s crown jewels of culture, and any visit to Chicago is incomplete without a visit.

#3. Willis-Sears Tower or Hancock Observatory

Whether you go to the Willis or Hancock Observatory, you will enjoy some of the best aerial views of the city.

Both observatories have ledges where you look directly down about a mile to the street. On a bright day, you can see as far as Indiana or Wisconsin depending upon your vantage point.

#4. Navy Pier

What trip to Chicago would be complete without a visit to Navy Pier? Navy Pier has shops, artwork, and games. They even have the famous, newly redesigned wheels. Walk the promenade or schedule a boat tour for your group.

Finally, if you are there Wednesday or Saturday night during the spring or summer, stay late enough to see the fireworks.

#5. Museum Campus

Many charter trips to Chicago include one of the many museums. To hit a few museums in one day, visit the Museum campus.

There you will find the Field Museum of Nature, Adler Planetarium, and Shed Aquarium within walking distance to each other.

All three take you to a world of imagination your group will enjoy.

Farther south in Hyde Park is the Museum of Science & Industry. While not part of museum campus, this is a fantastic place to visit if your charter is for kids.

#6. Lincoln Park Zoo

One of the best zoos in the United States is also one of the last free zoos in the US. The Lincoln Park Zoo has over 1,000 animals, including lions, tigers, and bears.

Don’t forget to watch the seals and penguins swim the polar waters, or let the kids go to the petting zoo.

The fact that the zoo is in the middle of idyllic Lincoln Park and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum makes it even more enjoyable.
