Buckingham Fountain is a landmark located in Chicago, in the center of Grant Park. It was designed to allegorically resemble Lake Michigan. It was dedicated in 1927 and is one of the world's largest fountains. It is deprived from Rococo Wedding Cake design.

If you want to visit the fountain, it is open daily from 8 am to 11 pm. There are water shows performed on every hour and 20 beforehand. The shows consist of the center jets shooting up at 150 feet. During dusk there is lights and music choreographed.
If you are planning of visiting Chicago, you should probably visit the Buckingham Fountain if you don't already happen to pass by is because of its main location. It is beautiful and grand.
