Vibe of the city

Oasis of green in the city of skyscrapers. Very much recommended, although on sunny weekends it gets quite crowded. But don't worry - you will find a spot to have a good time.

We walked through Millennium Park and observed the art work. Obviously the big bean was filled with visitors but it is pretty neat. You have to get under it and check out the perspective.

Millennium Park is a great spot for all ages but the joy it brings kids is great to see. The water fountains with faces are a great way to spend an hour on a warm afternoon. Our kids love getting soaked and playing in the wading area. A little further North in the park and you're at The Bean or... More

There's no way you're visiting Chicago and not see this place. What they have built here is truly amazing. A gathering place for locals and tourists alike, it's really a beautiful spot in the downtown area. On the day I was there I even got a free concert from a local school choir. Great for the whole family.

Great place where you can witness some great creations such as Frank Gehry´s Pritzker Pavillion and also the Cloud gate or the Bean by Sculpture Anish Kapoor.

We were at the park this past Sunday. Although it has "The Bean" and there are always many people around I found the park to be uninspiring. It is good for a rest and it is in a good location but other than that there is little to add. Too bad!

Spent around 2 hours at the park. Sat on the benches in front of the bean and ate sandwiches and drank cool water and pop. Clicked a gazillion fun boomerang pictures, and created some awesome memories with family. Very relaxing place with clean washrooms.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
