Nice park with lots of different areas to explore. Can be a nice walk. we started at Buckingham Fountain, and ended at Cloud Gate (The Bean). We also visited the History Museum at the Art Institute on a different day. There is definitely something for everyone here

Whatever else you do in Chicago, do not skip Millennium Park. It is a gem, right in the heart of downtown and has something for everyone. There's an abundance of greenery, including the Lurie Garden, Pritzker Auditorium, numerous places to just sit and people watch and during the summer, something's always happening here: Jazz Festival, outdoor concert, food fair ....

While in Chicago Millennium Park is a must! The Bean is awesome and the faces that squirt water at you are even better. Its fun to watch all the kids play in the water! Seen tons of families there enjoying the day!

One of the top places on my list when I visited Chicago on a business trip, I ventured down one evening to find the park filled with both locals and tourists. From playing in the fountains, making ridiculous poses with the bean, to an outdoor showing of The Wizard of Oz, this place at the edge of downtown allows you... More

I really loved coming to this park. I was there on a sunny day so i really had a chance to walk around leisurely and take in the beauty of the sculptures and the architecture. It's must see in Chicago.

To describe this would be hard. It's a beautiful open park space with awesome landscape and a great concert venue. Cloudgate right next door and a must see for your trip to Chicago.

Visited early on a Sunday morning and it was very quiet and had great opportunities for photographing flowers and other sights. Later in the morning there were lots of visitors and the park took on an entirely different feel. Great experience!

This is such a great park. I had a great time walking around, looking at the "bean" and the display of faces on the columns that have waterfalls. We were there when it was hot and it was fun watching the kids play in the water. Everyone was so friendly and it was so nice to be among nice people... More
