Even in the middle of winter, the setting was beautiful and the "bean" reflected the night lights of the city onto Millennium Park.

Everyone comes here when they come to Chicago. its a fun gathering point and close to the outdoor theater in Millennium park (if here in the summer, see a free concert there!) and the Art Institute. Its cool to check out and just be around people marveling at this curiosity.

This is probably the most visited spot in Chicago. A fine piece of art that welcomes and absorbs everyone. Great location, great views of the city in reflection. Great place to watch young and old have great fun.

A must see when visiting the Chicago lakefront. Both children and adults enjoy viewing themselves and the city skyline reflected on the "Bean".

Saw the bean and although it's one of the highly recommended things to do in Chicago.. it's not all that fantastic. Probably only spent about 5 minutes here.
