    More well-known as the "Bean" within Millennium Park. Grab unique skyline shots and photos of yourself reflecting off this masterpiece.

    Don't flick the bean. Flicking the bean will hurt your finger.

    If you come to skate at night it's a long wait! Yes that's the line... One hour ... Maybe more. It's Christmas holiday break though!

    When taking pictures, don't just stand there. If you sick your arms or legs out you'll get a shot with fun house mirror effects.

    Yeah it's touristy. Who cares. I'm local, but I always take out of town visitors here. All but the most jaded guests will probably enjoy it at least a little and it's free so what do you have to lose.
