I have seen this building from many standpoints over the years visiting Chicago. I appreciate the beauty of the building more each time. Best view is from across the river to appreciate the Gothic style at the top. A must see.

Not only is the building itself iconic, but all the inserts of buildings from all over the world were really fascinating! Spent ages here reading about all the different parts added. Definitely worth swinging by if you’re in town.

An impressive, massive achitectural "wonder" like no other. The façade ranges from strange to beautiful. Many schools of design from gothic to classic American sky scrapper. Pieces of art and historical interesting inlays line the eye-level exterior so walk around and enjoy. Add the lobby...More

This is one of the most iconic building in downtown Chicago. It is close to the river and can be seen by boat rips as well as on Michigan Avenue.

Worth dropping into the lobby of this building just to read the inscriptions on the walls and on the floor. Takes less than ten minutes.

An absolutely fascinating piece of architecture. Loved walking and reading all the rocks. Great for group trivia to see who knows the history of the most rocks. Everyone should definitely take the time to enjoy a visit to this building. Enjoy

This is one of my favorite pieces of architecture in Chicago. A gorgeous building form a distance, it is even more interesting up close. If you walk around the outside walls, there are stones from all over the world, embedded all around the building. These...More

The Tribune Tower is a neo Gothic skyscraper located on Michigan Avenue Magnificent Mile. Classic beauty and elegant historic architecture. Ornate stoneworks from all over the world are embedded into the exterior walls.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
