Great public green space where there's always something to do whether enjoying the flowering gardens, the art sculpture, splashing in the water wall on a hot summer day, or listening to music.

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.

Great park to people watch and relax before or after dinner. There is a cool outdoor bar and attractions to add to your visit.

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
