Super cool. This park has the famous mirror shaped like a bean and the crown fountain which one should also see. I've been twice now - once in Summer on a weekend and again in Winter during the week. Guess which one had hundreds of tourists?! Mid week during Winter was the best time to capture a photo without several... More

I'd love to take my family here on the weekend. 2 outdoor skating facilities, climbing walls, sculpture parks, open air venues, kids climbing frames. Great. Bit chilly in January of course but I bet it's great in the spring.

A great place to spend an hour or two to take pictures, people watching or just walking around. Would return if ever back in the area.

Great view of Chicago. Take a picture by The Bean, listed to a concert by the theater or simply walk around and take it

Millennium Park is a wonderful green space near the water with the Chicago skyline surrounding the visitor.

We were impressed with the park. We just went this January and most of the attractions were closed, but that was to be expected. We watched some ice skating and took some pictures at the "Bean". Summer is definitely the time to visit here to get the full effect.

The park is truly amazing. I do recommend going early in the morning in order to avoid the number of tourists it hosts around the year. Parking in millenium garage was not a good experience for us, convenient as it is since it is under the park. The machine was not working properly and it charged us twice in our... More

Been in the park twenty times already, whether it's near the bean, ice-skating or just walking around, if it's a nice day outside (no rain / snow), definitely worth to walk there and hang out!

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.
