Must see!

We walked to millennium park from our hotel in North River, a bit of a walk but a lot to see on the way! Loved the bean and the fountains with faces that squirt water!

I recently visited Chicago. This place was the first on my list. It's a beautiful and HUGE park. As everyone already mentions....go visit the Bean. My only advice is go super early and you have problems taking pictures next to it with very little people around to get into your pictures.

Great place to hang in winter or summer. Summer is busy with gardens and free concerts, yeah FREE. Lots of nice restaurants to eat or just get a refreshment. Winter time, bundle up and ICE skate, bring your own or rent them.

Loved visiting this park! So much to see! Entrances are on all four sides and you can walk the entire park in about 30 minutes. The Crown fountains are enjoyable to watch and a must is the Magnificent Bean! Be sure to take a picture by the Bean! You can also enjoy the Park's Grill, which I did not. There... More

A lot to see and do depending on your mood. Just walk around and admire the plants and flowers. Go to a day-time or night-time concert outdoors. Photograph the city in the reflection of the BEAN.

Very nice inner city park. Well kept. Lots to see - the "Bean", sculptures, video interactive water fountains, gardens. A nice place to escape from the city within the city.

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.
