Had a great time skating at Millennium Park. It's cold in Chicago, but a little skating and some hot chocolate does wonders. Great for Families and Friends.

The park was absolutely beautiful! We walked around for hours and enjoy the scenic views we’re at the park. Even though it was cold I sat some flowers and trees were just in beautiful as they ever could be during the summer.

Excellent stroll across ending at Modern wing of the Art Institute. First there’s the Pritzker stage, then the Bean, Crown fountain and finall Lurie garden. So lucky to have them in our front garden.

The Cloud sculpture, The Pritzker Pavilion, the bridge over Lake Shore Drive are just few of the attraction points of the park. Plan on visiting if you come to Chicago.

The ice rink at millennium park in front of the park grill is a fabulous place for family.. You can rent ice skates or bring your own when you too cold to do it anymore go inside for a hot chocolate. Wonderful Christmas feeling.

It's worth a small detour to see, not far from the skating rink. I took a photo walking by during the morning. It's even more impressive at night.

I took the family here to walk around and take some pictures when the leaves were turning colors mid-fall. It's a great place to visit and walk around in the city. Can't wait for the outdoor ice rink to start.

I have out of town guests coming and there are 15 in our group, including kids. We do have 3 cars but looking for affordable &amp; convenient way to get about. Thinking about Museum of S&amp;I, Willis Tower and Millennium Park in one day. Or, maybe a boat cruise from Navy Pier instead of S&amp;I. Thanks!

Why not look into renting a 15 passenger van for a day or two? They're usually pretty reasonable to rent. That way you only pay for parking once and only fuel for 1 vehicle and not three.

Hello friends, I will be visiting Chicago next week (Fri-Mon) along with my husband. I already got the City Pass to see the most sought after 5 attractions. (Sky Deck, 360 degree Chicago, Art Institute of Chicago, Field museum, Shedd Aquarium). We will be staying with our relatives in Oak Brook and will have a rented car. My question here is what would be a better idea to drive the car and have it parked nearby and walk or take the metro train? I intend to see the Cloud gate in...More

Way too much to do in your short visit. I would drive (outside of rush hour) park the car once and forget it and walk/uber everywhere else. Your other option is to take the metra train from Hinsdale but parking around the station is very difficult B.

Marta from Lombard to MILLENNIUM PARK (or close by)? (3 Replies)
I will be staying in Lombard for a business trip and want to go into downtown for the afternoon taking the Marta from Lombard. I have found a tour that departs from Millennium Park. What is the best route to get there?

Response fromVegas2007|
I was going to post about Lombard as my friend wants to go visit the National University of Health &amp; Sciences in Lombard. So I was going to ask about the Metra as I see that is what you take. No idea what she wants to do there as I am not sure there are tours or whatever.
