Chicago Buckingham Fountain is known as a top tourist attractions in the city. The fountain is located in Grant Park at Columbus Drive and Congress Parkway. This article explains that the fountain was created by Edward H. Bennet and the design was influenced by Latona Basin. The fountain is dedicated to Chicago by philanthropist Kate Buckinham in honor of her brother and it was eventually opened on May 26, 1927.

The fountain has a major water display from the center jet shooting 150 ft and is displayed in the air every hour on the hour for twenty minutes. In the evening the water display has a incredible light show with music. The fountain is something that is very Chicago because it is one of the finest displays of art inside the city.
