This is one of those iconic Chicago experiences. If you don't get a picture of 'The Bean', you've missed out. It's unfortunate that it's not really worth a trip just to take a picture or two. We were staying in Lincoln Park area and had to take a 10 dollar cab ride to get to Millenium Park. The Bean was neat, but I wouldn't say it worth the cost to get there. Worth checking out if you're in the area, though. Don't forget to stand underneath it and look up!

It was crowded but definitely worth visiting. We went on a gorgeous day and the sun reflecting off of the cloud was spectacular. Since it was winter, the park was not as pretty, but still you can tell that it is a great place to visit in the summer.

Seeing the entire skyline in the reflection was great. Fun for taking goofy family shots. Don't miss it.

That's the first word that comes to my mind, it's a must for clicking some cool pictures which come out really well. If one looks carefully quite a bit of the skyline and surroundings get captured in the reflection (and hence the clicked picture). It's a place buzzing with people and activity and good for spending a couple of hours in early evening.

Fun place to stop and take pictures - yes there are lots of people - but you can swing into an opening pretty easily.
Go when the sun is shining and get an incredible reflected view in "the bean."
