An unbelievably warm February day - 18 degrees Celsius - and extremely full from our breakfast at Wildberry Cafe means a lovely long walk through this amazing park. This space is one of the main reasons I love Chicago, and loved sharing the romantic walk with my boyfriend. So much to see and so many selfie opportunities. It's a close... More

The park is huge and beautiful, especially when the weather is good. Quiet and clean place, even when crowded.

A must visit park with so many options! This park is beautiful in the spring and summer. Winter months offering skating and a great kids park. An icon in Chicago!

We did not think we could do this in the middle of winter but we got lucky somehow. The weather was unusually warm for this time of the year and we had a great time visiting the park and spending time around the Cloud Gate. A big shiny bean in the middle of a park - a pretty cool idea!... More

The park + cloud gate are right next to each other making this area a must-see for a touristy visit. The entire park is a great place to take a stroll.

One of those places you just have to go to while in Chicago, especially if it's your first time. Great to just people watch and take in the city feel.

Seriously, it's a park with a giant metal bean! I have to admit I did find it pretty cool. Yes I got sucked into the touristy act of pictures and selfies ducking on occasion to avoid a flogging by fellow tourists wielding iPhones at the end of telescopic sticks. All in fun, if you've never been, it's a must activity.

This is one of the touristy places in Chicago. It is very close to the museum and a lot of eating places.

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.
