Make sure you see the bean. First thing in the morning is best, fewer people and the light shines off of the buildings better!

It's a nice green space with several interesting objects to see. I would sit at Crown Fountain to see different faces, check out Cloud Gate from all angles, etc, etc. It's nice to see skyscrapers from here as well. 色々と面白いもの(アートですが)があります!シカゴに来ていかない人はいないでしょうが、フリーエンターテインメントだし、街の中のグリーンスペースはとてもいいことです。

For those visiting Chicago be sure to set aside time to walk around Millennium Park. In particular during the summer time the park offers a number of things to do and see.

We spent a lot of time in the park. If you want to take it all in and do some of the activities or just relax the park offers it all.

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.
