Venue + Excursion

The Marriott Marquis Chicago
2121 S Prairie Ave, Chicago, IL 60616

Transcend the ordinary at the all-new, four-star Marriott Marquis Chicago. Making its grand debut, the hotel spans 40 stories overlooking the world-class setting of Lake Michigan, downtown Chicago and South Loop. Located just two blocks from the Green Line ‘L’ stop, the hotel offers easy access to major airports and Chicago attractions, including Millennium Park and Soldier Field.

Adler Planetarium
1300 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60605

The Adler Planetarium was founded in 1930 and is located on the northeast tip of Northerly Island at the shore of Lake Michigan. The Adler is America’s first planetarium and part of Chicago’s Museum Campus, which includes the John G. Shedd Aquarium and The Field Museum. The Adler is home to three full size theaters, extensive space science exhibitions, and a significant collection of antique scientific instruments and print materials. In addition, the Adler boasts the Doane Observatory, one of the only research-active, public urban observatories. This lakeside observatory is the only place in Chicago where the public can see planets, stars, and galaxies up-close and in person.
