Lovely day in snowy chicago. The bean is all we thought it would be..brilliant! We visited early morning and there wasn't a lot of people around, so we had it nearly to ourselves. My advice is, visit early and you'll get great pics

Although we visited in February 2018, and it was freezing I have to say, the sun was shinning and we had a wonderful walk around the park. It was clean, tidy, extremely well presented, in my opinion a credit to the City

This place is home to the Chicago bean reflective sculpture set with a backdrop of impressive skyscrapers. Other interesting sculptures are there and it is a great place to stroll around and take in the place.

Didn't do much there just took a picture, so I do have generic shot to say I was here. Think maybe would be better in the summer, I was freezing when I went so :/

The park is beautiful...you have to go, if you are in Chicago. Close to many hotels and many things to do.

Brief walk through the park on a cloudy, warm, winter day. Ice rink was just opening. Lots of people at the bean. It was nice to see security wandering about. Would be neat to see in summer.

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
