I am not particularly fond of attractions that weren't or aren't useful just famous for the hype around them. On the contrary I really like cool outdoor things to do. The Cloud Gate turned out to be really neat - even though that is the center of the selfie universe - because it combines green parks, lake shore and city for free.
I thing this is a bit of New York in Chicago due to the skyline but mostly the crowd. The bean gives great reflection of the sky and the buildings around them. It is just a wonderful sight located in a central location on the shore.
Definitely worth a few pictures, selfies and a rest at a nearby bench looking at people making weird photos of themselves.
