It is a great outdoor park, especially during summer months. Kids enjoyed it and it was a blast. Everyone should go there, visiting Chicago!

Cool to see and worth it if you are visiting the Cloud Gate anyway. The Cloud Gate is the main attraction. The rest I could take or leave.

The skyline views from the park are amazing. The fountains are such a great idea for an easy cool down on a hot day and there is tons of cool stuff around the park including huge rock climbing areas.

We strolled Millennium Park in downtown Chicago to check out the Bean and the Pavilion. I wish we would have timed it better and been able to be there when an event was happening. Can't wait to visit again to enjoy the rest of the park and some music!

A couple told me about the 312Go smart phone Ap which I installed and took through the park - very informative! The fountain, amphitheater (which we learned is classified as a sculpture) and cloud-gate - aka "The Bean" - were all impressive and... More

If you're in Chicago you have to go by Millennium Park, but you probably won't have to go out of your way to do so. it's in the heart of downtown, right off Michigan Ave so you'll most likely see it by chance.

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.
