“Whata Hoot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I could sit for hours watching the towers spurt water from those interesting faces - Hard to describe to anyone who hasn't been there. Have also been there in the summer when the kids have a ball in the water. Little chilly to do that in October, but I was tempted!

“Chicago's Jewell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Millennium Park is yet another brilliant addition to the city's always improving profile. It is a statement of Chicago's love for superb architecture, culture, nature and most of all its people. Beside the beauty, it provides year around activities. From summer stage adorned with a mash of speakers providing equally superb sound to visitors with paid and free lawn seats alike, dance and theater events at Pritzker pavilion, the fountain of many changing faces providing a cool place to play for the kids and kids at heart, to winter wonderland ice skating rink in the heart of the city. And of course, with the fine dining at the Millennium Park Restaurants and a close proximity to the famed Art Institute of Chicago it is
yet another place that makes Chicago great, people friendly place to call home and if not that lucky, to visit and explore.

“Saw the Bean!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I had seen the bean on tv and saw people taking pictures by it and couldnt resist the urge to dive in to the tourist ways. My boyfriend and I had fun walking through Millenium Park. Nice location and area. Very Clean.

“Spectacular Fountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Situated on the lake front. Lovely to sit and watch the foutains, especially on a windy day, as the spray is blown far and wide and catches some people out !
