Amazing, very artistic and well designed sculpture. It’s located in Millennium Park. It is great to walk around and under it to see different type of reflection. The kids were even lying down on the floor on the corners and putting the legs against it to get cool pics. Make sure to take a picture on the side facing the buildings, you can see the Chicago skyline on it.

This is just one of the really neat things at Millenium Park in Chicago. It's so interesting to see all the angles and reflections on this Cloud Gate!

Our first visit to Cloud Gate (or as Chicagoans say "the bean" ) was on a snowy winter day.
Our children and grandchildren love that they see themselves in the reflection of this highly
polished sculpture along with the downtown scene. The view changes as you move closer and
walk around and even (depending) on your height, beneath.

This is becoming the icon of Chicago if it isn't already. We went on a nice crisp day and the reflection of the city with the clouds was a beautiful as a picture!

The Cloud Gate (a.k.a. The Bean) is a beautiful sculpture worth a visit if you're in the downtown Chicago area. Experience beautiful and unique reflections of downtown Chicago and capture interesting one of a kind photos - either with or without yourself and your group included. A very popular tourist attraction. Stunning during the holidays!!
