Having a busy day in the windy city? So just sit on the grass in millenium park and, if in summer, enjoy the jazz, orchestras and who nows what else being played for free on the stage. Great during day and night

It is a really cool area, lot's of art and of course the infamous "big bean". Very near the water of Lake Michigan, which is host to the Buckingham Fountain, Planetarium, Field Museum, amusement park, etc...

Visited on a hot summer days, but the cool breeze off the lake made it tolerable. Cool eclectic art, history (museums & statues), music (free concerts in open theatre), gardens & greenery, etc. alongside Lake Michigan.

Chicago city tour was part of our family reunion, and this beautiful park was one of our stops for an hour. What an amazing place! There was so much going on, so much to see and do, that I would have enjoyed spending much more time there, like an entire day! We enjoyed the giant silver 'bean', the photography artwork,... More

A park within a city is always a welcome sight. The grounds were beautifully kept and after a brisk walk from Oak Street beach, the benches to sit and admire the scenery was appreciated.

If you can make it there without driving then this is the best tourist value in Chicago. There is a lot to see and explore. Yes the Bean is cool but so is the garden. The bridge on the east side should be checked out also. We walked through here on our way back from the Taste to our hotel.... More
