A lot of free fun if you're visiting Chicago. There are several art installations throughout the park not to mention the famous bean. There is always a lot going on and you can spend as little or as much time as you like. It's always fun to ice skate in the park during the winter months.

The park was exceptionally breathtaking on the one day with a temperature over 10 degrees. The complex was filled skaters and people out after a severe storm the week before. City did a fantastic job keeping the sidewalk clear for pedestrians.

Chicago has some really good events at this venue. Nice open air atmosphere with plenty of space and of course no lack of vendors.

I visited Millennium Park twice while on business, and found the park to be beautifully kept, and full of people. The bean is a must see, and there are different events hosted at different times. While you're there make sure you make your way down to the waterfront to see the lake, and enjoy a nice walk in the park.

Wonderful place to take a moment and rest. My friends and I spent our afternoons here, and a couple times we even took a nap. The park is always clean and close to great food and in a great location.

I enjoyed it tremendously and when you are in Chicago, you just have to see the silver "thing" in Millennium park. I would like to see how the artist proposed to do a giant reflecting jelly been to an investor and get the money for it ;) I just can not imagine ... Well anyway the result looks amazing

Due to it being winter, this wasn't on my to do list this past January but I have gone to the park for just walking around as well as for a concert. Loved it.

They have fests and music - something for everyone, suggest parking elsewhere and taking a cab or doing the healthy walk, your heart will thank you! Good location by the wonderful water.
