Found in the Windy City, the Buckingham fountain is a famous landmark constructed out of pink Georgia marble and uses over 1.5 million gallons of water. The fountain is said to be influenced by a Rococo wedding cake, and the 4 hours symbolize Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin. Be sure to check out the fountain between April and October when it is in operation.
