“The Bean”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The view of the Cloud gate was mesmerizing. When going be sure to take a camera along for some excellent photos. We had best time relaxing and just watching all of the different people making there way around it. An amazing work of art...Very intriguing...A must see if you are ever in the area...

“Most interesting site in Chicago”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Can't put into words how much fun it was to play around under the Bean. How could anyone not enjoy it? Be sure to take your picture in the reflection and then zoom in on it. Amazing!

“The Bean!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Bean is a fun and quirky attraction located in Millennium Park. It's a highly congested area but fun to visit. The entire sculpture is made out of reflective material so you can walk up to it and take a picture and get your own reflection! It's really cool at night too!

“Cloud Gate”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Bean is the famous nickname for Could Gate. It is a truly amazing piece of artwork and not to be missed if visiting Chicago. Expect a lot of people but also expect to be amazed and ready to take a lot of pictures.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

One of the best attractions in Chicago. Simply amazing! It was actually drizzling rain some of the time that we were there and there were still people everywhere. Not to be missed if visiting Chicago!
