Love this huge shiny sculpture, it reflects the city and sky so well - and all the people in front of it. I stop by every time I'm in Chicago just for a quick view

Didn't really know what to expect, but it was fun. Very busy, but amazing how it's seamless and well maintained.

Such a simple concept but so many photo opportunities here. Seems like thousands of tourists flock to 'the bean' I'm Millennium Park each day and I can see why. It's free and pretty iconic, so why not!?

Probably one of the more unusual attractions I have seen. Right in the middle of Millennium Park. You can take pictures next to, under, or leaning against the bean. It attracts a lot of visitors.

Notice how it is eerily cool under the bean..... I was there on a 95 degree day and I swear it felt like 70 degrees under it. Very weird!
