Interesting park pressed between skyscrapers and the lake, full of sculptures and interesting sites. Got a close-up of the "Bean" sculpture, along with hundreds of other visitors. Good place to bring the kids.

This Park is located in the middle of the city. The place is beautiful and has lots of things to do. The Symphony was playing and that was amazing. There is also a great area for little kids.

We went to get some different pictures for my grandson's senior picture. We got so many it was really hard to choose. So much to see and do. You have to experience it to appreciate!

My husband and I spent about an hour walking through Millennium Park on a Saturday morning. There were so many activities going on, including a group yoga session that must have had several hundred participants. With playgrounds, fountains, public art and the spectacular view of the city, it's a fantastic part of the Chicago experience.

Lots to do for kids and adults. Fun fountains that kids can play in so bring their suit or towel and of course your camera!

Definitely worth a visit if you have children downtown. New palyground is extremely nice and seems to be as well maintained as Disneyland. Don't know how the city can afford it. The water garden is lots of fun and interesting.

We expected this to be very touristy, which it also was, but simultaneously it was very peaceful and we just enjoyed two hours sitting in the park, listening to a rehearsal of a classical concert.

You really can't say you've visited downtown Chicago unless you've been to Millennium Park. The confusing thing is that several things are rolled up into the Millennium Park label. Cloud Gate (the Bean statue) is there, as is the Crown Fountain, and Lurie Gardens. Also at Millennium Park is the Great Lawn, where there are lots of concert opportunities. In... More

Very creative use of space for "the people"! We were very impressed. A lot of different elements for all aged and activity preference such as active versus relaxing. Great amphitheatre. Enchanted forest was unique.

I have been here a few times and enjoy taking the time to walk through it. There is a large fountain and walking paths with beautiful scenery. If you are spending a few days in Chicago, this certainly should be part of your itinerary.

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.
