Millennium Park is a must if you are visiting Chicago, the Bean, the different sculptures and fountains. I love everything. Even the bathrooms are clean and easy to find.

Dance festival in the evening over the weekend. Excellent dancers from all over the area. Free to the public. Very hot during the day, park was full of families playing in the fountains. Clean and well groomed grounds.

Beautiful park with outdoor concerts. Friday from noon to 1:30 they do rehearsals so you can sit on the lawn and enjoy the show. Be sure to take pictures at The Bean.

I LOVE this park! Once of my all-time favorite things to do in the summer is go to a free concert in the park. I love taking a picnic, including a bottle of wine and hanging out with friends and family. I also love the water towers for my son (and myself!). The Park Grille has excellent burgers and the...

Cue if you have to but enjoy the free events in the park. Great for all the family. Hot in the mid day but gets cooler once the sun goes down ready for the performances. Get as close as you can to the stage to get a real image as well as the big screen.

In all of that glass and steel, to come upon such an oasis was a major surprise. The gardens were spectacular (the smell alone was wonderful) but the sculpture was mind boggling! The Cloud Gate was amazing and the water towers for the kids were so much fun. The art pieces by Jaume Plensa also played games with my head!... More

With the business of Chicago, it was nice to get away and take a nice stroll through the peaceful Millennium Park. However, construction took up a good portion of the park. Beautiful views of the city though!

If you are in Chicago, it is customary to see the Bean. It ranks up there with the Sears/Willis and the magnificent mile. It is a unique park, with many features to explore.
