Visited with my daughter one day and took the whole family back the next. Fun in the snow as well as cloudy weather. Great pictures of the Chicago streets from Millennium Park and going across the bridge to Maggie Daley Park.

It was cold but definitely the short walk to the park. We went in February so they even had a skating rink. We went at night but it still looked very nice,

The Bean is a must, but I'd recommend Maggie Daley corner - kids will enjoy games in summer and ice-rink in winter.
