The park offers lots of cute spots for great pictures! You should try and get there early, specially if you want a good pic with the bean!

Free concerts, tree shade, water features and the awesome Cloud Gate: It's a must see! Going early in the morning is but in the summer before it get's too crowded and very hot.

Water areas for the little ones to play in, concerts, movies, places to eat and drink. A very large, clean nice park in an urban setting. Worth a walk through this park.

Very clean and nice site to see while there. Was surprised at the lack of food/beverage vendors/bathrooms. Walked along the shore path from Grant to Millennium and would have liked something to drink when its a hot day.

We found the park to be well maintained with many attractions. Being a Sunday it was teeming with visitors. A nice place to visit and spend time with family and friends

This park is amazing! So many things to do for everyone from kids to adults. The free outdoor concert is a big plus. And the water feature is perfect for the kids!

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
