Chicago has some really nice parks and this is defintely one with its own flair and character. The highlight is the large modern sculpture that is know as "the bean". There is also the modern amphiatheatre and superb views of the south loop.

A fun afternoon taking pictures at The Bean, reflecting the beautiful Chicago skyline and funny pics of ourselves. It's just a short walk to the ice skating rink. Skate rentals were $12 and mid-day on a Monday, it was accessible with a lot of room to move around and skate. Definitely worth the stop!

When I come to visit I make sure to come here. It gets better all the time. I really enjoy walking around this area. Something for everyone. The new kid area makes me wish my kids were little again. There are plenty of other things to enjoy including a variety of events. Check out the BEAN, concerts, sculptures, big lawn... More

My second visit to the Park at Christmas in the past 2 years. Maybe my 500th visit in my lifetime. I worked downtown years ago. Beautiful children, lovely vibe. Great experience. Love to walk downtown with all the visitors. I still love it.

Was a delightful experience on a mild autumn day. Open space, fresh air and lots to see.Glasshouse was great. There were quite a few young children there with parents enjoying 'the forest'.

The new kid play zone is awesome!!! I took my little son there and had as much fun as he did. There are plenty of events all year around: the BEAN, ice skating, concerts, nice alleys where one can sit near water, sculptures, big lawn area to enjoy during summer, rock climbing and much more. A definite must for anyone... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
