The most amazing park in the middle of a very busy city. It is very peaceful and there is so much to do. Love the bean and watching people ice skate in the winter!

Millennium Park is beautiful during every season. Spring brings the bright change of colors and long strolls through the garden surrounding the area. Summer waters splash to cool off visitors, with the smell of Chicago' s cuisine waffling through the air. In fall, the bursting foliage casades through the warm breezes from the lake front. Finally there's winter with skaters,... More

Millennium Park is a beautiful park, cloud gate is in the park, which also has an out door theater. But just to walk thru it is beautiful, all the buildings across the street are older and beautiful to look at.

The sculptures and atmosphere really make this place worth seeing. Obviously, the Chicago "bean" is one of the most iconic objects in the city, but there are other parts of Millennium Park that are just as interesting. If you happen to be near it, go check it out but it doesn't have to be a priority. You won't regret it... More

Millennium Park is a beautiful green space that is sandwiched by the city on the west and the lakefront on the east. The space is often used for festivals and other similar events. Many Chicago landmarks are in the park or practically in it, so this is a must-see spot for any visitor to the city!

25 acres of awe-inspiring landscape, breathtaking architecture and an iconic collection of public art, "The Bean" is an iconic draw for visitors and locals alike. Take a picture in front of Cloud Gate, the official name for the massive, stainless steel structure that’s become Chicago’s signature landmark. In its mirror-like surface you'll see not only your own reflection but the... More

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.
