Chicago Waterfront

Chicago Waterfront

Chicago's waterfront on Lake Michigan is open and accessible and one of the city's many attractive features. Here, one jogger passes another on a cold March morning near the Shedd Aquarium.

Chicago River

Chicago River

The Chicago River runs through the center of downtown Chicago. Through an amazing engineering feat back in the 19th century, the direction of the river was reversed, so it now flows away from Lake Michigan. Along the banks of the river stand many of the city's historical landmark buildings.

The Bean

At the bottom of Chicago's "Magnificent Mile" lies Millennium Park. One of its distinguishing features is this amazing sculpture titled "Cloud Gate" but popularly know as "The Bean".

Hazelton Hotel

Author Marie Wilson has just quaffed a perfect chocolate martini in the Hazelton Hotel in the upscale Yorkville district of midtown Toronto. The hotel bar is stylish, spacious and dripping with celebrities.

Iceberg

Iceberg

If you're in Newfoundland in June, you will almost certainly be lucky enough to see one of the enormous icebergs that have "calved off" from glaciers far to the north and float down past Newfoundland.

Cape Spear, Newfoundland

Cape Spear, Newfoundland

The lighthouse at Cape Spear, like all of Newfoundland, is often enveloped in thick fog. .
