The Bean in Milennium Park is a fun visit while in the Chicago Loop. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

There are several sites here that are fun for tourists, including the "Cloud Gate" sculpture and the water fountains. Perhaps most impressive is the outdoor musical concert theater. There was a free Beethoven concert the night we visited, and the part is beautiful.

Millennium Park is always so much fun! I've been several times in the summer, once in the fall and once in the winter. There's always so much to do. It's definitely less busy in the fall and winter. But it's a must see every time...More

The weather was on my side so I enjoyed it all! Not a huge fan of the crowds so I skipped some of the touristic highlights and decided to rent a bike and enjoy what every great park has to offer.

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
