Rent A Car Chicago and Promontory Point
Promontory Point is a peninsula of land jutting out into Lake Michigan located on the Chicago Park District at 55th Street. "The Point" was built and designed by Alfred Caldwell using existing limestone blocks to make the seawalls and stone sitting rings around the lakefront edge. This historical landsite has been open to the public since 1937, where its beautiful landscaping, native plants and stones can still be seen today.
