An iconic sculpture of a giant mirrored bean at Millenium Park. This is a must see and one of the best spots to take photos in Chicago. You can see the awesome architecture of downtown and gorgeous landscape reflected in the bean.

Quirky bean-shaped stainless steel sculpture designed by Indian born British artist Anish Kapoor, located in the Millenium Park within The Loop. This place is swarming with people of all kinds and ages, all trying really hard to snap the most creative picture. It's cool to see reflections of Chicago's skyline on the silver platform. If you're into photography and in it to have some fun, expect to hang around here for about an hour :)

Anish Kapoor's sculpture is called Clouds but everyone calls it the bean because of its kidney bean shape. You can go right up to it and touch it, or better, move around it and watch your reflection and the city in the background change shapes.Recommended for:Family Travelers

I heard about "The Bean" but really nothing prepared me for the entrancing and charismatic nature of this public art. It shines in the urban landscape reflecting the grids of the buildings on Michigan Ave, and the trees in the park. It reflects everything, distorting in weird and exciting ways. Stand right under it. Look at yourself, then you friends. Then you notice all the people, people from all over the world coming together and laughing and playing with the reflections in "The Bean."
