nice place to rest

It is located in the downtown Chicago, where you cannot miss it. Nice park with fountains, attractions and grass where you can lay and even sleep =D

We had several recommendation for the Field Museum and are so glad we went. We live near DC with some of the nation's best museums, and this one is right up there. The Terra Cotta Warriors were fascinating, and we loved the 3D movie of Galapagos Islands.

It's free and it's fun! Lots of photos to be taken here. We stopped here while taking the Big Bus Tour, which is not free, btw.

So many things to see and do for free. Could have spent the entire afternoon roaming around the park. Great children's park, close to the magnificent mile, clean and plenty of room to move about. A must see while in Chicago!

The high-lite of the Millennium park is the Bean which is the mirrored sculpture which attracts people to take all sorts of wonderful photos from different angle. Very nice. There is a wall that you can climb in another part of the park but we gave up because the line was so long and the service so slow. There are... More

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.
