A trip to Chicago won't be complete if you don't take a picture of your reflection on the bean! There is also a skating rink you can spend time at, and it's free. Rental of the skates if you didn't bring any is for a rate though.

Beautiful park with some incredible views. The bean is always a crowd pleaser. Park was well maintained and felt safe day and night. The Bathrooms at the Amphitheatre were clean and well lit. A must visit when in Chi town..

It's free; you can have a nice stroll; you have some really nice views of the city and there's the bean. Go and spend a few hours and take a few pictures.

It is always good to see a safe haven in a big city. There was good police presence and lots of young people on the rink. The view from above in Millenium park was interesting. You can rent skates if you don't have some. Skating is free as well as strolling through the park. The face statues are lit at... More

The bean never gets old. We also loved the new playground going in. It is a wonderful place to get your children tired for free!

Many museums surrond this lake side park, great view of fireworks on the fourth of July. Great food close. This is the location in which the President found out he was elected. A great place in the heart of the city.

I love the city of Chicago in general, and this park just adds another reason to an already lengthy list. Its grounds are meticulous, everywhere you look there are families enjoying the sunshine, it's centrally located, and is kept really clean!

It's a pleasant walk downtown Chicago while seeping your late. The bean will cast your heavenly reflection upon the cracked sidewalk and you will no doubt feel the warmth of the people around you as you take your first uncertain step onto the ice of the small skating rink in the center of the park. Close to the Art Institute... More
