Great place for kids to run around between museum visits. Great place for architectural pictures and selfies at the bean!

Still a worthwhile visit. Sunday evening after the Art Institute. This is a quick stroll north (2 blocks) to view the 'Bean', or enjoy ice skating. Safe area as presence of police is known (and they are helpful if you have questions)

Ice skating under the bean at Milennium Park was beautiful! A little packed at the time we went (mid afternoon on a Sunday) but still a great time.

Don't miss taking a walk thru this park. Cloud Gate sculpture is must photograph stop. Also known as "the Bean.' The crown fountains and the videos of Chicago residents is unique. This must be beautiful in the spring and summer with the gardens. We also...More

We went during the winter, but it would be even better in the summer time. A great place to take pictures.

Bring a camera this is definitely a selfie moment or enjoy it with family and friends. A very important part of what makes Chicago a great city to visit.

This is a must see while you’re in Chicago - they were having a jazz festival while we were there, so it was pretty busy. But it was still work the stop for photos.

Great stuff to see, The Bean, is a must see! Amazing - even when raining, but of course is better when dry!

There is a place for activities like skating and rock climbing. You can rent lockers there if you are participating in any of these sports. But not sure if they will rent otherwise. Can still take a chance
