Lots of people huddle here for a photo opportunity. It's very unusual and one of the iconic landmarks in Chicago

Must-see landmark in Chicago. Not so big as though. Area clean and beautiful. Close to small skating ring during winter

So it’s a bean, not much else to say. It looks cool, but mind you, there are a hundred other people there wanting to take photos of it, so you won’t get a photo alone with the bean.

A fantastic photo opportunity in central Chicago. Really makes the surrounding skyscrapers seem otherworldly and is well worth stopping by to see.

This is a huge park & must be bustling in the summer. It's so close to the Magnificent Mile, the River Walk & the Pier. Everyone goes to take a picture of their reflection on the Bean.

I can only assume going to "see the bean" would have been 100 times better if it weren't cold, windy, and rainy... But it's a bean. In a park. There's nothing really else about it. I guess it's one of those things you "have to...More

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
