“Great Day at Millennium Park :-)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2006

It was my 1st time in Chicago and had read about MP, but was not that excited to go there. I am so glad my friend dragged us out there. It was such a great place to walk around and people watch. The crown fountain was not working that day so that was a bummer :-( It was a warm day and they had this water area where kids were playing in ... We took off our shoes and relaxed our feet in the water, and just took in Chicago. It was not that crowded the day we went which made our experience much better. I wish we had the time to go see one of the concerts in the Pavillon, it seems like it could be very romantic ... maybe next time?

We had gone to 2 museums already, and it was great to enjoy the outdoors and still get to see the beauty of Chicago. Two thumbs up for Millennium Park!!!!!

“Awe Inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2005

My wife and I travelled to Chicago July 8th to 10th and stayed at the Hyatt Regency which is located two blocks north of the Park. We found out about the park through it's website and spent Saturday afternoon and evening enjoying the beauty and atmosphere of it's surroundings. We had dinner at the Park Grill. Food was great but the noise level was my only concern. On Wednesday's and Saturday's The Grant Park Orchestra perfoms at the pavilion in the park. I was amazed at all of the groups of people with their portable chairs and picnic baskets full of all sorts of food and wine sitting and enjoying the music in the large grassed area which is located behind the fixed seating at the pavilion. The orchestra concert was the highlight of the evening. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend spending time at this world class park especially when there is music scheduled at the park.

“Whoa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2005

I also had no idea about this place! We were visiting a friend and they didn't even tell us this is where they were taking us. When I saw it my mouth dropped to the floor! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! You have to see this!The 1000 faces of Chicago fountain was AMAZING! It was winter when we visited so the water feature wasn't on but it was still the coolest thing I've ever seen!!!
Have fun!

“Unmissable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2004

We'd never even heard of the park when we visited in September. After a chance meeting with a local who recommended it, I'm still raving about it now. The undisputed highlight of our four-day trip to Chicago. Loved it all, but the water fountains were mind-blowing. If you could only see one attraction while in the city, this would have to be it. You won't be disappointed.
