5. Kansas City to Chicago

Make your way to <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLCUL000188" title="Millennium Park" href="/topic/travel/tourism-leisure/millennium-park-PLCUL000188.topic">Millennium Park</a> which serves up music, art, and architecture. Navigate to navy Pier, with its bodacious boardwalk and fabulous Ferris wheel. Journey straight up, to the 103rd floor of the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLTRA0000153" title="Willis Tower" href="/topic/arts-culture/architecture/willis-tower-PLTRA0000153.topic">Willis Tower</a> (people still call it the Sears Tower in this town) and see what you can see from Skydeck Chicago. If what you behold is a sinewy city, made of muscle and moxie, know too that there are more subtle things: the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLCUL0000106" title="Chicago Cultural Center" href="/topic/arts-culture/chicago-cultural-center-PLCUL0000106.topic">Chicago Cultural Center</a>, and the Lincoln Conservatory among them.
