“Something Free and Culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

There isn't much to do for free in Chicago, especially not parking near there. But Millennium Park was awesome to just browse around. It was freeeeezing cold when we were there, but the interesting sculptures, sites and architecture helped cut the chill. From Cloud Gate to Crown Fountain you will see some pretty unique pieces of art. We hope to come back and look more in the warm weather.

“The "Bean"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

This is a really neat place to visit! Great place for pictures of yourself or of the skyline. Lot's to do around there. A nice place to relax and take pictures while kids do other things around there.

“Iconic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

I liked visiting the park, primarily because of its iconic stature. It is a must see in Chicago, just to be able to say that "I've been there." It is in a perfect location and well within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, or anywhere else you may want to go in Chicago.

“green oasis in a busy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

With so many things to see and do in Chicago, Millenium Park may not rank high on any tourist's list. We visited this park because it was beside Cloud Gate, and found it to be a breath of fresh air in the midst of our sightseeing. The lovely greenery, the walks, the sight of people relaxing and taking a break is a welcome change from the museums and skyscrapers. It's right in the middle of downtown so it will not be out of your way.

“The Bean!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

What a cool park, it was cold so there wasn't much to look at in the gardens, but there's an ice skating rink and the famous "Bean" sculpture that had many onlookers there taking "selfies" in odd positions at. Really neat place and a really cool piece of art!
