Grand Park in Chicago is home to one of the best fountains of the world. Inspired by the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles, the fountain is styled as a rococo wedding cake. With light and water shows taking place each evening, the fountain attracts hundreds of people. Shooting water up to 150 feet via the central jet, the fountain has made a name for itself worldwide.
Buckingham Fountain is considered Chicago's front door. The fountain represents Lake Michigan, surrounded by four sea horses representing Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan. It has a Beaux-Arts style and was modeled after Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles in France.
