Chicago is special for me, because I have my aunt and cousins living here. When I was there I spent most of the time with them, I have visited the city center several times and this is my recommendation for the best walking route.

Ogilvie Transportation Center
The walking route starts in the transportation center just in case you are getting the city center by train, but also is a good point to start over because of its location.
To get the feeling of the city the best is to see it from the top! This is one of the best places to see the skyline. There are also like glass cages coming out from the building shape, where you can see through the floor while you are standing up.
Franklin–Orleans Street Bridge
This walking route is coming this way because of the unique contrast of this area with the elevated subway, the old buildings and the new ones.
Also to pass through one of my favorite buildings of the city, the two grey towers behind of me.
The Chicago Theatre
Important theatre which is a must to pass through to see it as it was denominated a Chicago Landmark.
Icon of the city made by 168 stainles steel plates welded together inspired by liquid mercury which makes reflections of yourself and all the buildings surrounding. It is located in the Millennium Park

One of the best rooftops in the city to get a panoramic view of the canals and the skyline.
The entrance is free and atop you can order cocktails, beer as well as appetizers.
By crossing the DuSable bridge you will find many historical and beautiful buildings as the Tribune Tower and the Wrigley Building.
