This beautiful space combines outdoor art installations with greenery and fantastic views of the Chicago skyline. An easy add-on to a visit to the Art Institute, Loop, or Grant Park. A great example of how this city has undergone a renaissance in the last 15 years.

You can't come to Chicago and not go to Millenium Park. There are awesome photo ops here! The famous Bean sculpture reflects the beautiful downtown skyline, always changing faces on the waterfall are mesmerizing to watch and the summer classical concert series at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, designed by Frank Gehry, is free and a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday evening.

One , if not the biggest tourist attraction in Chicago is the infamous " Bean", but with good reason! The Bean who's real name is " Cloud Gate" in a now legendary part of Chicago and a great way to see free art, as well as a distorted and mirrored view of the Chicago skyline.

Gotta see the BEAN!
The park is Chicago's equivalent to New York's Central Park.
It is a great place to hang and people watch.
It is also a great place for families and picnic's.
The largest outdoor "green" space in Chicago.

Admiring yourself from all angles of the shiny, reflective bean is a must-do while in Chicago. Once you're done taking some cool photos there, head over to see the LED face fountains (you'll know them when you see them...they're actually a little creepy). If you're there in the winter, you can go ice skating at the Millennium Park ice rink.

Spend an afternoon checking out all of the art and design in one of Chicago's premier parks. Some must-see highlights include: Frank Gehry's Jay Pritzer Pavilion, an outdoor concert venue; the Cloud Gate, lovingly referred to as the Bean by locals, which is a mirrored bean-like structure designed by British artist Anish Kapoor; and, by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, the Crown Fountain, which consists of two 50-foot-tall structures that project images of a broad spectrum of Chicago residents.

The newest of Chicago's large parks and it has become a major part of the city since its inception. So many people flock to the Bean (actually a sculpture called the Cloud Gate), and Pritzker Pavilion, designed by Frank Gehry, is where summer's Grant Park Music Festival takes place. The winter brings ice skaters, and the summer brings picnics...there is always something to do at Millennium Park.

Great views of the architecture of Chicago's skyline from this park [especially at the Bean], plus there's always a lot going on at the amphitheater. Free tai chi on weekend mornings, concerts in the park. The garden is also a nice place to walk through.

Millenium Park makes the downtown shore really interesting. There's a lot going on in the area. The "Bean" is a huge, steel sculpture polished such that its seams disappear. When clean, it's fantastic.
