Of course had to see the 'Bean'. The park was being set up for move night and Princess Bride was playing later. The bandstand area was so lovely...actually the whole park is really special. Extraordinary designs. Glad we went. Definitely a must see.

Great park to see and experience. Really cool water art and feel free to test the waters especially on a hot day. The Bean is pretty cool. Definitely lots of people taking in the park on a good day.

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
