1) Millennium Park

There is plenty of fun stuff to do at 24.5 acres of Chicagoland near Lake Michigan shoreline. The area is filled with interesting architecture landmarks and awe-inspiring pieces of art. The most famous one is probably Cloud Gate aka The Bean, a beautiful sculpture that reflects and distorts Chicago’s skyline (sort of like a fish-eye effect, you have to see it for yourself, any picture won’t do it justice). Followed by Crown Fountain, a huge video sculpture that’s also a sight to be seen, if you’re already in the neighborhood. You could go for a ride on a Ferris wheel, go ice skating or enjoy an outdoor concert. After all the sightseeing you’ll surely be exhausted, but if you have Legendary by your side, that’s not an issue. You can rest your feet all you want in your Mercedes 550 rental nearby all the way to your desired destination whether it’s in South Bend, Barrington Hills or somewhere on  North Shore.


How to Spend My Time in Millenium Park?

If there’s up to 7 of you, Lincoln Navigator, Ford Expedition or Chevrolet Suburban could fit you easily, with plenty luggage room to spare. Some people recommend visiting it twice at least since it can be overwhelming if you try to take it in all in one go.

If you need a private car rental near Michigan Ave from  North-West or South West Suburbs, just give us a ring and you’ll get to enjoy art in no time!

To see Lake Michigan in its best suit, you simply have to visit Navy Pier. With almost 10 million people visiting it yearly, Navy Pier certainly has a lot to show for itself. Who would have thought that once upon a time, this wonderful tourist trap was a prison? Draft dodgers in World War I did their time on the very same ground people use to walk and relax today. In 1927 the “Municipal Pier” was renamed Navy Pier and re-purposed as a tribute for Navy Personnel and their service during the war. At the time of World War II, this pier was used as a training for pilots. Nowadays, the only things “flying” over the Navy Pier are fireworks and people who ride on the 15-story Ferris wheel.

Do you have little ones by your side? Not a problem! If none of this works, you can always take them to the that conveniently located inside the Family Pavilion.


What Is the Distance Between the Navy Pier and My Current Location?

And most importantly, is it worth the drive if it’s too long? It’s worth a 40-mile drive from Barrington, 35-mile Buffalo Grove trip or a 30-mile jaunt to Deerfield.

You won’t feel all those miles in a deluxe Cadillac XTS or a fabulous Lexus LS460 L, trust us on that!

There’s no bad seat in the house and the acoustics are fantastic, but again you wouldn’t expect anything less from this famous fine establishment. The cheapest tickets are usually around 40$, and since the shows tend to end around 10-10:30 pm, you’ll have plenty of cash left for a fun night out!  There’s no better place in this world to take your clients or colleagues to, given that you want to present yourself as a worldly person of refined tastes.

But again… It’s 2018, enjoying classical music is all well and good, but you don’t have to save your ears for the classic exclusively. You want to hit the clubs later or visit some underground rave or a rock concert? With clients and colleagues of course!  Legendary will be right there, taking you from point A to point B, all night if that’s what you want.


What Should I Wear When I Go to the Symphony?

Symphony Center has no dress code, although this kind of institution usually comes with an unwritten rule which hints at more formal wear. Still, some people have been seen wearing jeans, and no symphony-dress police denied them entrance. So, it’s safe to assume that as long as you have a ticket, you can wear whatever you want.


10) Wrigley Field

Even though December is not exactly the prime time for baseball, there’s still a lot to enjoy in Wrigleyville. All of you who visit from April to September are in luck because they have an option to catch a Cubs game, buy themselves a hot dog, and enjoy while in sight of virtuosos swinging  their bats around.
