A summer event with stalls & exhibitions made this a fun place to visit this weekend. Food stands & music have it a lovely atmosphere & the gardens nearby were very pretty.

Very cool attraction, the reflection of the bean is just beautiful day and night. There are many things to do there and a very close by parking that's really convenient.

Very beautiful and artistic design. I would love to have seen a concert here but we had little time.

Highlight was the bean sculpture. Fun green space in city. Crowded. Lots of people getting pictures. Would enjoy more without the crowds

Stopped by to see the bean, and discovered there was a free concert going on. Then walked across the bridge to find out there are climbing walls, mini golf, and other activities that people can take advantage of.

Really clean, places to sit and relax, the flower gardens were my favourite esp with all the butterflies. Morning exercise classes were held near the auditorium area. Easy to navigate through.

Millennium Park is part of a complex of parks near the lake. Beautiful landscaping and venues for dining, relaxing, live music etc.. The Cloud Gate is located here and it is adjacent to the Art Institute.

Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
