Great spot for a stroll

Public restrooms for the win. It's got everything. Lovely views, wide walkways, trees, modern art, and location. Perfect spot for a picnic downtown.

This park is the perfect place to see the best of Chicago assets. The contrast between the park setting and the impressive commercial building skyline is worth the cost of parking (not cheap). It feels like a smaller version of Central Park - and we love Central Park in NYC!

I ran from Mag Mile to the Park and back, along Lake Michigan. When the weather is good, at it was unbelievably warm and sunny when I visited in mid-September, running along the lake was exceptional. I returned to Millennium Park later with my wife and we enjoyed the peace and quiet and beauty within the big city. You can... More

If you're looking for Green Space downtown Chicago, go to Millennium Park. Beautiful park with sitting areas and generally there are special events set up. Great place to relax while touring and shopping. Also home of the Bean where 100s of people are. Get a picture quick and then get out and enjoy the rest of the park!

I really liked this park in the heart of the city. I am a huge art fan, so I loved both Gehry's amphitheatre, the bean and the various other installations. You don't need to spend ages here, but it's nice to sit, people watch and take it all in.

Millenium park is an easy 5 or 6 block walk from the Chicago river and boasts some interesting exhibits, including the cloud gate, which provide great photo ops!

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
