Grant Park is also home to outdoor festivals and events like the Chicago Jazz Festival, Lollapalooza, Grant Park Music Festival and Taste of Chicago. That's just part of the story. Walk a few blocks to the west of Hotel Monaco and you're in the heart of the downtown theater district, which presents:

  • The Chicago Theatre
  • Goodman Theatre
  • Ford Center for the Performing Arts (Oriental Theatre)
