Cadillac Palace Theatre
The Cadillac Palace Theatre is a Chicago relic that has captivated the public since it opened in 1926. The theater has attracted a roster of well-known personalities from stage and screen, and has become the premier destination for pre-Broadway tours and big-budget musicals in the city. Previous Chicago native Oprah Winfrey brought the stage musical adaptation of The Color Purple here in 2007, while Tim Rice and Elton John's Aida made its world premiere on its stage in 1999. Standing at the corner of LaSalle and Randolph, the Palace is smack-dab in the middle of the city, within walking distance of cheap hotels in Chicago.
If you want to escape the hubbub of city life, take the three-and-a-half-mile trip to Lincoln Park Zoo, one of the few free-admission zoos in the U.S. The interactive exhibits will keep you entertained as you discover how zoo scientists protect mammals and birds from around the world. Four miles from here is Navy Pier, which overlooks the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Opened in 1916, Pier Park contains a miniature golf course, remote-controlled boats, and a musical carousel.
