    The free events here in the summer are awesome, although trying to enjoy the park otherwise can be hard during tourist season. The beat time is fall or spring early in the morning- no one's there!

    An absolutely world class park in one of the best cities I've ever visited. Try to catch a summer concert at the amphitheater.

    Free concerts in the park. Lots of green space and art. I was really impressed with all this park had to offer and it was all free. I love Chicago.

    An amazing place to catch a free concert during the summer, awesome views of Chicago's skyline, and just be one with Chicago's residents.

    If you do not visit Chicago frequently, definitely a place to check out. There's always something to check out in Chicago though, even just walking down the streets can be a nice day in the city.

    Great, beautiful, open space. The Bean looks like an awesome space ship, great place to admire the city skyline and plenty of restaurants and bars around it to enjoy. It is a must see!

    Great walking paths, and scenic views. Also you can enter the art museum from here through the modern wing entrance, which always has a considerably shorter wait. Must see tourist spot.

    Located in the Loop, "the Bean" is a must. Especially when you see your reflection and the reflection of others. Great park including gardens, fountain, ice skating rink & outdoor concert area.

    Cloudgate is really cool (The Bean). The concerts and movies are great. It's a beautiful venue. But the best part of the whole park might be the garden.

    Excellent park in the heart of the city. Very kid friendly. Saw many children playing in the unique fountains. The "Bean" sculpture is located here and is a great selfie opportunity.

    The Cloudgate is a must if you're in Chicago. It gets super busy around that area so if you're hoping to get a photo with no tourists in it, try going early in the morning.

    Cool park with plenty of outdoor space to walk around. Really crowded skating rink!!! Bring your own skates to skip the line.

    Head towards the lakefront to discover a huge (and seemingly new) set of playgrounds. Kids will love the slides and climbing equipment.

    Millennium Park is probably one of my favorite places to go in Chicago. Gorgeous walking trails, fantastic sculptors, and generally a great way to meet creative people. It's awesome!

    Great ice skating in the winter and cool off to in Crown Fountain in the summer. It's fun to visit Cloud Gate (affectionately known as 'the Bean') all year round!

    A public park for the whole family, and definitely a Chicago must-visit! Highlights are the Crown Fountain, a public art and video sculpture; and the stainless steel Cloud Gate. Admission is free!

    Of course you’re going to Cloud Gate aka The Bean but don’t miss walking through Lurie Garden. It’s a beautiful oasis, not far from The Bean, the shows why Chicago’s motto is City In a Garden.

    Popular park with art everywhere, an outdoor skating rink in the winter, an amphitheater and the peace of art that everyone gravitates towards, the "Bean". It will draw you in to check out.

    This is an essential part of Chicago as a city, just as the Arch is to St. Louis. Make sure to take a million pictures because at every angle the city looks different.

    Consisting of 24.5 acres, the park was built above rail yards. It is home to the Cloud Gate sculpture (known as “the bean”) by Anish Kapoor and the Jay Pritzker Music Pavilion designed by Frank Gehry.

    worth the stop if you are in the area. so much to see and do. research parking or come on foot--the garage is a hefty sum. we paid $25 for less than 20 minutes.

    As a hub for family activities & cultural programs, this is a cool place to visit! Just remember your shades - UV strength peaks at solar noon, but b/w 10am-2pm, sunglasses are especially essential.

    If you need some power after lots of pictures of the bean, you can find plugs on the posts around the lawn.

    The Bean is a tourist must see! If you go, go early in the morning. When I went NO ONE was there! Also, there is Yoga on some Saturday mornings at the amphitheater!

    Take the time to walk it all, there's more than just the fountains and sculptures. I walked all the way down to the Aquarium, by the Michigan Lake Shore and up to the Pier place! enjoy 24.5 acres!

    The fountains do sometimes spill water but don't ask anyone when .. I don't think there's a system behind it ;) just grab yourself a coffee or so and chill there ! :)

    Winter is finally here and what better way to celebrate the cold by going for a spin on Chicago's most popular ice skating rink in Millenium Park! The views on the city's skyline are gorgeous!
