Lots of activity at this bridge all day long. Most of the riverboat tours are accessible from this area. The bridge itself is beautiful.

Michigan Avenue Bridge is a great place to take photos. You can get some really nice buildings in the background. You need to be careful because it is really busy.

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.
