While on our trip to Chicago we would walk from our hotel in downtown Chicago to the Museum and Aquarium. This walk brought us through Millennium Park. What a beautiful park, we really enjoyed the views of Lake Michigan, and the comfortable feel of the park.

Went to this area because there are so many huge objects that you cant resist to use as props in your pictures. It was a little windy when we went, but still pretty cool.

Free concerts, excellent sound, wonderful architecture, food and alcohol permitted... what's not to love? The crowds at the popular headliner shows can feel claustrophobic. But there are plenty of classical, jazz, opera, and lesser known rock and country bands for those who prefer personal space. There are no bad concerts here! One of our favorite summer picnic spots.

OMG, it is such fun to watch all of the creative stuff people do around the Bean---You can't help but take a thousand and fifteen photos. Go there on a sunny day if possible, and prepare to hang around an hour or so....Oh, and go see the FACE WALL FOUNTAIN thing right nearby....Not sure of the real name, but HUGE... More

Right in down town on Michigan avenue, close to lake and many good places to eat. There is an open air theater where many times free musical and dance performances are going on. Cloud bean is in the park too. Art institute (museum) is across the street.

This area gets busy with people just taking pictures of the chrome bean sculpture and various other steel architecture. The view from here is good of the skyscrapers.

Just so happened we made a walk thru in April. So much better in the summer. Fun to people watch at the "bean" as they take pics of their reflections. The area is clean and a beautiful side to the big city on the other side of the street.

We visited on Easter Sunday and it was such a beautiful day. The weather was nice and sunny and the park was filled with visitors. Make sure you see the bean. Great photo ops!
