“GOOD EVEN IN THE RAIN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

First visit to this park. It was raining in late October so most of the trees had lost their colours. Beautifully laid out with different areas. I found the wild flowers/flora near the Art Institute particularly attractive. Must return in the summer to attend a concert in the impressive amphitheatre, designed by Frank Gehry. Cloud Gate a draw for visitors. A wonderful backdrop of skyscrapers.

“Spectacular gardens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Not only are the Bean and Waterfalls worth visiting, but the gardens are wonderful. There is such diversity in the plantings and it's a great place to hang out and people watch

“Millennium Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Great park and the "Bean" is a must see. Great place to relax after shopping and touring museums.. Be sure to buy a chicago
hotdog and one of the kiosks.

The design of the outdoor theater is beautiful. Bring your camera and have fun with the shinny silver jelly bean!

“Lots of things to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The bean (cloud gate) is in the park and it is the coolest public art I have ever seen and I loved just taking pictures and watching other people play with angles and take pictures. Loved the big CLEAN bathrooms, yes ladies the bathrooms are very clean, I have never seen that in a park before!
