I’ve visited this park several times and it never fails to impress. Always great picture opportunities, beautifully designed and with great events popping up almost weekly

No visit to Chicago will be complete without a visit here. The Bean is an architectural marvel. Lots of place to walk around. Buzzing with activity. Crowds throng in large numbers. Photo opportunity plenty

Millennium park is such a beautiful place. We mainly stopped through to take a picture at the bean, but it's quite easy/wonderful to just walk through and enjoy the scenery.

This is one of the free things to do in Chicago. Cloud Gate is located here and there is also a huge outdoor concert area that has overhead speakers that hangs overhead in a work of art. I had never seen anything like it.

Wonderful park in walking distance of several downtown hotels. If you can, take the opportunity to visit. When we were there the skating rink was still there. Enjoyed the sculptures and of course The Cloud.

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

We walked around the area around 11pm. I felt pretty safe, but there were some homeless people in dark doorways on way back to the WIT hotel. Most were minding their own business, some were vocal but not threatening. As... More

There is a place for activities like skating and rock climbing. You can rent lockers there if you are participating in any of these sports. But not sure if they will rent otherwise. Can still take a chance
