The Buckingham Fountain is one of the first Chicago landmarks I got to see. This is located at the middle of Grant Park. This fountain is one of the largest in the world. The Buckingham Fountain is near Columbus Drive and Congress Parkway which is the beginning of the historical Chicago experience. In other words it is considered Chicago’s front door. In the evenings the fountain is illuminated. This runs from April until October. In the winter months when the fountain is not spraying out water it is lit up with decorative lights.
