Go early so that the crowds aren’t in all your pictures. Try to capture the reflection of the skyline with the buildings—it’s very cool!

It's there, it's pretty, and it's iconic. You won't need to spend much time there, just long enough to take a selfie in its warped class and enjoy the views. The whole area is usually over-crowded and annoying, and fyi, the locals and pretty much...More

This place was fun and worth the stop for your iconic photos. It was busier than we expected and then realized that they were having some kind of festival in Millennium Park.

Honestly didn't know this had a name besides "The Bean" (touristy of me, I know, HA) It's a Chicago icon so I definitely recommend seeing it. It's pretty cool to walk around and especially underneath and take pictures in the reflection, but all in all,...More

It's such an iconic structure in Chicago that you really must see it. Don't forget to take that selfie...you just have to.

We absolutely loved the "bean"! The view from every angle was breathing! The reflection from the sculpture offered many opportunities for great pictures.

Iconic sight but very beautiful! The bean distorts your view of Chicago's skyscrapers and the crowds surrounding it. A must see in Chicago!

'The Bean' is a very nice work of art, that does just what it should - make people laugh and interact with it. Unfortunately it was partly covered in snow when I visited, which kind of destroyed the mirror effect, but it was still great...More
