Millenium Park is a beautiful spot, especially since it is smack dab in the middle of downtown Chicago - so it's easy to get to as well. You've gotta go!

Going to Chicago I really only knew two things, The Blackhawks are a great hockey team and I have to see The Bean. It really is a cool piece of art to go look at, I made my mom walk so far to see it. It is in Millennium Park which is also a beautiful park, there are places to eat there and it is right in the heart of the city. Definitely take a walk to see this, if you don't you're missing out.

Liked it very much. Still had several other people around at 10pm. Thought it would be empty, not a big deal though. Daytime has to be awesome for the skyline reflection. City lights were cool though.

"The Bean" as it is nicknamed is a large, shiny bean shaped sculpture located in Millennium Park on Michigan Ave. It's polished to a high shine and very reflective showing the surrounding buildings and the every changing sky. Fun to take pictures rather distorted by the curved shape much like fun house mirrors.

I was told by everyone "you must go see the bean". I had no idea what they were talking about, so when we were in town for a wedding, we decided to stop by for a quick visit. What an amazing sculpture! You must walk inside of "the bean" to get the full experience! Very fun!
