  • This is one of the most appreciated piece here in Chicago. We went there around evening and the place was not that much crowded and hence I was able to get some decent shots. The bean mirrors the beauty of Chicago! The skyline on one side and the green view on the other. The surrounding park/garden is very well maintained and well worth a walk. Lots of eating joints in the surrounding area. Wheelchair accessible. 🔸Please hit like if you found this helpful. Thanks! 🔸Follow me for more.
  • Millennium Park Is huge lots to do within walking distance. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby, and much much more! Love it! Lots of places too take pictures and of course most iconic The Bean Chicago 💖💕💞💖😻 Family Friendly place. I remember coming in the city of Chicago there is a calendar that shows all kinds of events going on almost every month must check if you are interested, do so!
