Must See in Chicago

I think we were here the coldest day of the year and we still enjoyed it and got awesome photos. Can't visit Chicago and not come here.

I've been here a number of times and always find something new or interesting. Bands are present often, be sure to bring a blanket. Ice skating in the winter, but not certain it is technically in millennium park or one of the connecting parks; there are city blocks of green but the are technically different parks. A must stop on... More

Expansive park with an ice skating rink in winter. Has the cloud gate and other sculptures in the sidewalk. The large screen that shows different faces appears to be under renovation. Located close to the Art Institute.

This park contains the bean, an ice skating rink (in the winter), an outdoor amphitheater and unique playground equipment. This park is a MUST-SEE if you visit Chicago. It is central to the city's tourist activity. It is beautiful and we weren't even able to walk across the entire park. The only downside was that the 2 ice skating rinks... More

As long as there isn't a big Chicago festival at the time it is a wonderful place to stroll. Maggie Daily Park is in the NE corner of the park for kids (and adults) to play.

This giant park was pleasant to walk through and contained lots of great public art. I highly recommend spending some time here.

Great place to take a walk or run. Great vores of the Lake and visiting the Bean. A nice place to just go and relax and breath the fresh air

We walked through the Park on a weekend stay at a nearby hotel. Being in the middle of winter, the park was not very green, but we enjoyed this open-air oasis in the middle of skyscrapers. The bean is cooler than I had imagined, the serpent bridge was cool with cool views, and there was a big, unique playground for... More

You can easily spend a couple of hours in the millennium park. After the cloud gate and the pavilion, I recommend to walk towards the lake front and envoy the view. If you're still in the mood of walking, just walk along the trail to navy pier.

The most amazing park in the middle of a very busy city. It is very peaceful and there is so much to do. Love the bean and watching people ice skate in the winter!

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
