“Brilliant Creation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The Cloud Gate is nothing short of an architectural wonder. There is no visible support and welding. It is a brilliant addition to the Millennium park. Snapping selfies outdoors couldn't get any easier :P

“Sculpture for the people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

Sometimes you see art in public places and you dont see a use of it. This artist made his "bean" a tourist hotspot! A visit to chicago without at least one photo with this amazing artpiece is not complete!

“Check out the Bean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Definitely worth a visit and snapping a few pictures of the reflective surface. A great attraction that is free in Chicago and you wont find anywhere else.
