Great for some short walks and checking out the art. Will be amazing for families once fully finished.

I really enjoyed Millennium park, even though it was freezing out and the snow was falling. Great features, the bean, ice skating and fountains. Great location! Great atmosphere!

Local called it beam, it was AT & T technology display, the reflection on the people and city view were priceless. I did not visit the ice rink, it looked fun for those people there.

Located across the street from the Art Institute of Chicago (on the Monroe Street entrance), the Park - built over a parking garage and dilapidated old rail road tracks, is a... More

Was there this past summer and it was amazing. You can walk and lay in the grass and there's almost always something cool going on. The Pritzker Pavillion has special events and a summer concert series. Check it out in advance and make plans to get there early and get a good seat. Chicago is lucky to have a place... More

They know how to do parks in Chicago, not just skyskrapers. On a warm and sunny sunday afternoon, I took a walk and had a look at the Cloud Gate and the Crown Fountain. Bring your kids if they travel with you and let them play in the water.
