We visited it in the snow but it still had that lovely reflective quality. People where proposing, bridal groups were being photographed and the vibe was uplifting. You get to take some great photos too , well worth a look

We went 2-3 times during our stay. We were lucky to be almost alone the first time so we got great pictures.

If you want to do a good thing you might do worse then spend a few minutes trying to find this place and then you will get to take pictures with a bunch of other folks around.

This is a typical tourist spot.... not much to do for people of an adventour taste lol. Just a place to take some pictures and move on and situated right at the Millenium park. I'd say Chicago has a lot more to offer than this...More

I went in February while it was snowing. We got a very cool effect with the snow and could actually take solo pictures because there was not a lot of people

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
