Got to hear a concert final rehearsal

Very interesting place. Nice park. Right next to Art Institute. The concert venue is a wild architectural piece and the Bean is interesting (how did they build that thing?)

If you like people and crowded areas and grass, this is the perfect place to be. There are usual event happening here on the weekends. Good place to hangout with family. And since its near downtown, you can quickly grab a bite near by as well.

On a cool day, this is a great place to escape the noise of downtown Chicago. There was a high school or middle school band practicing Jazz in the park, free to listen. The Pritzker Pavilion is a great photo opportunity as well as Cloud Gate (The Bean) sculpture. But on a hot day, try the two water feature pillars... More

We walked around probably as everyone else, nice clean park, great to go for a walk with friends. I wish we would see some concert or any action but there was nothing going on at the time. Maybe next time ;)

Chicago is truly one of the greatest cities in the world and its parks and free ventures are part of what makes it great! This is a must see for tourists.... On my first visit (and first date!) the symphony was practicing in the park. Very romantic.

Millennium Park is one of the best urban parks out there. It's a beautiful park with lots of creative use of space. You will find the clown fountain, the cloud gate and the pavilion etc. In the summer, they have free music festivals held in the pavilion where you can enjoy.

This place is huge & great. Free entertainment most nights through the warmer months in a fabulous auditorium; great gardens & statues - what is not to like?

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.
