Great place to access the River Walk right off of Magnificent Mike. Bonus the river was jelly green from the St. Patrick’s festivities. Lots of shops and eateries in this area.

We stayed at Trump Tower for 3 days and we walked across this beautiful bridge at least a dozen times. Saw something new almost every time we crossed.

The bridge, on it's own is nothing out-of-ordinary but it affords beautiful views of Lake Michigan as well as tall skyscrapers like Trump Tower, Tribune Tower etc. A little ahead is also the buzzing Magnificent Mile.

I'd use public transportation to get downtown instead of trying to drive and park downtown. And there is too much traffic to really see anything while you're driving.
