One of my happy places in Chicago is/was the Buckingham Fountain, short for the Clarence F. Buckingham Memorial Fountain (Source: http://www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/parks/clarence-f-buckingham-memorial-fountain/)
Many of you might know “one of the largest fountains in the world” thanks to the intro of the series “Married … with Children – Al Bundy”.
Experts say that it was meant to represent the Lake Michigan. Also the design of the fountain was built in the rococo wedding cake style. During nighttime the fountain is illuminated by various colors that produce a quite mystical aura.
For further information about the fountain’s history & design have a look at the Chicago Park District website.
