You walk through the park. See the art. See the paths. See the trees. See the flowers. Nothing amazing. Simply a park in the middle of a city.

What a treat! Chicago has the most amazing "front yard," (as it is often referred to) and it is filled with something for everyone... lots of things, in fact. You should spend the day, enjoy the fountains, breathtaking views, remarkable access to historical and artistic...More

You need to go the entire park and enjoy all we have to offer. This is a fun area in the “Other End” of the park. We have fantastic art work all over the area. Enjoy.

The park is close to millennium park and you may walk to visit this park from millennium park. Nothing much to see except for the bronze legs placed in walking state.

This park has evolved into a wonderful park over the decades. Today there is definitely something for everyone. As a child, it was a green space for family picnics and music. Today picnics and so much more. Great job Chicago!

Once again, a part waterfront park system that borders Lake Michigan that is incredibly spectacular. Chicago residents must be proud.. The park is so green, open, clean, friendly and most of all... SAFE!.. A real treat for outside art enthusiasts.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
