It is an interesting attraction. We got a wonderful picture of ourselves with a reflection of the building where we used to work.

It's one of those pieces of sculpture that lifts your spirit. Even when surrounded by hundreds of visitors it's beautiful (even better if you can get there before the hordes arrive :-)).

Nothing is special about the Bean. The park is under construction. Nothing much to see. May be the park is better in late spring, and early summer.

The Cloud Gate at Millenium Park is definetely a must-visit if you´re visiting Chicago. Pictures don´t make it justice, you must see it in person. The location of it perfect since you have tons of other atracctions near you can visit as well. Don´t forget...More

I didn’t have a lot of time to explore Chicago but this was one place I wanted to visit and it was amazing. Though it was crowded, it was worth it. If you have time you should make your way here!!!

We always try to take any out of town visitors to see Cloud Gate at Millenium Park. It is on the list of must see's when ever anyone wants to know where to go.

We took the obligatory photo opp. It’s best to go to both sides. The cityscape reflects on one side in the picture.

Swing by for a few moments if you’re in the city. Iconic ... mixed crowd, has a nice hot dog stand and has lots of greenery around. Must visit when in town

Definitely worth a visit - with or without lots of people around. You'll be able to get some quirky photos of The Bean.

We go several times a year and the crowd varies with the day of week as well as the weather. if you go on a weekday (not during summer or holidays) you will probably find the crowds much more manageable any time of the day... More
