"The Bean" is on the top of the "To Do" list at Chicago. Very fun and romantic despite the huge crowd. more »
This is one of the most appreciated piece here in Chicago. Before, I am wondering why it is so famous and now I know why. It is truly magnificent. When I was here, the place was not so crowded so I was able to position myself for photo-ops! Getting closer to the bean, you may appreciate the beauty of the mirror of the sky if on the inner side and the buildings on the outer part of it. The bean mirrors the beauty of Chicago! In the midst of city, there’s still place for recreation and fun.
A unique art installment, you won’t find anything like it elsewhere. Definitely a must see if you’re traveling through the area. The family had a good time taking photos under it. We grabbed some lunch nearby. There are plenty of things to do and food to try in the area.
