If you have never been to Chicago before this is the park to visit. See the Cloud Gate or as the Chi natives call it the Bean lol. Its a big park with many things to do from getting wet or walking around and viewing the scenery or catching a movie or concert if its available that day. Enjoy.

We drove here before driving to the airport to fly home. The fountain was well worth the $4 to park. Amazing fountain that is a do not miss.

I have been to many major Cities including NY, DC, ATL, Austin, Miami, Milwaukee and Phoenix. Chicago's sculpture art was no other experience. Well worth the trip. Despite Chicago's poor reputation of being a murder capital of the US, this area of Chicago was extraordinary. I am glad I trusted my gut and only took The warnings as cautionary.

Love the lunch concert series during the summer. Nice escape from the office to eat alfresco and enjoy some world class music. During outdoor festival season might get lucky enough to see your favorite band for free!

Walking thru the park was busy but very relaxing. Saw people of all ages helping with photoshots and just having fun. If you go to just one place in Chicago go see the Bean.

This is a cool park to pass some time in. There is a little bit of everything to check out. We spent an hour or two walking around and taking it all in.

There are beautiful gardens and walkways throughout the park, but the Bean is the main attraction. It is a very interesting work of art and a must see if you are in the area.

This park has a great location. It is the place to go to enjoy the outdoors. Also, it is the home of the famous Bean.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
