I was lucky enough to tag along with a coworker to Chicago. I have seen many shows on the Travel channel highlighting it and couldn't help tagging along. Of course, all the shows of Chicago highlight the "bean", or Cloud Gate, as it is technically...More

Best place for a selfie, group picture, etc. Neat way to capture the skyline. Go early to avoid the crowds.

This piece of art continues to be a wonderful experience for all comers. It’s minutes away from the lake shoreline and other museum/art places. Went over 8 years ago and decided to come back again...it’s free as well.

There is a large parking garage under Millennium Park that would be most convenient. If you park at the north end, closer to Randolph, you'll come out of the garage closer to the Bean. I always use Spot Hero for prepaid... More
