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.

  • A must see in Chicago. The “bean” is beautiful. The park has other things to see. Excellent place to go with the family and have a picnic.

  • We went there around evening and the place was not that much crowded and hence I was able to get some decent shots. Visited Cloud gate. The bean mirrors the beauty of Chicago! The skyline on one side and the green view on the other. It looks way more cool than you must have seen in pictures. The park is very well maintained and well worth a walk. Lots of eating joints in the surrounding area. Wheelchair accessible. Lots of shows/concerts are being organized here. Cultural gem in the heart of Chicago downtown. 🔸Please hit like if you found this helpful. Thanks! 🔸Follow me for more.
  • Millennium Park is a must-visit for any Chicago tourist. This large downtown park off Michigan Avenue has much to offer, including an outdoor concert venue and several interesting public art installations. There are also several beautiful, well maintained gardens. The most famous art piece is certainly the polished chrome "bean," or "Cloud Gate." Taking a photo at the "bean" is a rite of passage for any Chicago tourist. There is also ice skating in the winter, and a cafe and restaurant. Lots to do and see at this downtown gem!
