If you visit Chicago, you must check out Millennium Park. It features the Crown Fountain, where children frolic in a unique water area on warm days, Cloudgate (aka the Bean), an interactive sculpture that reflects your image as well as the gorgeous Chicago Skyline. On summer evenings, free concerts and movies light up the stage of the Pritzker Pavilion, where one can enjoy a picnic on the lawn, or sit up close in the seating area. The Lurie Gardens are an oasis of natural beauty that soothes the soul thirsting for peace in the concrete jungle. You haven't really been to Chicago until you've been to Millennium Park!

A beautiful, free park for the public to enjoy. Different ornamental gardens, paths and greenscape to explore. Open air concerts for everyone to enjoy, free-of-charge or if you prefer, purchase a ticket for a close-up seat.

Beautiful park with the famous “bean”, a fun fountain for the kids to run through that has actual faces on it that periodically “spit” a stream of water. Lots of activities, wonderful photo opportunities
