This is a wonderful sculpture in Millennium Park (downtown Chicago). You can see reflections as you walk up to it, of people and buildings and the Chicago skyline. We took our holiday picture in front of it a few years ago.

The Cloud Gate brilliantly reflects Chicago. It is fun to observe the different reflections in the different points on the sculpture.

We loved visiting the Bean it was clean and shiny. Not a huge crowd on a sunday morning and easy to get to using the bus.

The bean is a fun place to just hang out and let your kids explore. The photos of the city's reflection off the bean are fantastic.

Get a panoramic view of the skyline! And it is in the beautiful Millennium park! Watch movies on the lawn in the summer or ice skate in the winter!

It was a neat thing to see. No trip to Millennium Park is complete without stopping to see the Bean! Lots of people taking pictures and milling about.

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
