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.
