Start your tour of Chicago at Millennium Park, considered one of the largest roof gardens in the world. Sitting atop a railroad yard and a network of underground parking garages, the park features several artistic highlights, most notably the popular "Bean," a legume-shaped, stainless-steel sculpture designed by artist Anish Kapoor. The sculpture's surfaces reflect and distort the city's skyline, making it a favorite backdrop for photographs. Don't miss the 15 m (50 ft) video sculpture/fountain, composed of black granite and light-emitting diodes that display digital images of Chicagoans puckering their lips and appearing to spit water. Take a look at our Chicago day trip app to schedule your visit to Millennium Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Millennium Park Reviews
Lugar muy bello ,grande para caminar y pasear . Árbol y pista de patinaje por la época muy lindo y decorado . El frío en esta época es fuerte pero vale la pena la vista more »Very beautiful, great place to walk and walk. Tree and skating rink for the time very cute and decorated. The cold at this time is strong but worth the view
We were here in December and were able to see the Christmas tree, as well as the bean. It’s a great park with views of Lake Michigan and a really good children’s section. more »
So much going on to see and do. Would love to be able to go back and spend more time. Heard someone (trumpet player) practicing for the free concert that evening and the acoustics were amazing. Love the "bean!" Still have not gotten to the shore of Lake Michigan. Hoping to soon!
Cool, large park in downtown Chicago. Home of the famous bean (officially named Cloud Gate) which, apparently, you are practically required to take a photo of if you visit the city. And those faces on the tall fountains? Yes, they really do move every so often. Actually, they really freaked me out at first because I kept thinking I was seeing them move out of the corner of my eye while walking down Michigan Avenue, but then when I would stare at them they didn't seem to do anything. But watch long enough and the faces will move just a little. It's actually a pretty cool effect. But yeah, back to the park... it makes a great place for a stroll whether by yourself or with your family.
