Nice place to visit

In December they have a beautiful ice skating area as well as restaurants. There is some interesting artwork in the park.

The reflecting bean was a lot of fun. It held a lot of fascination for most of the visitors. The rest of the park was kind of interesting also.

Chicago has vastly improved this area with skating rinks and trails with music, the Sculpture "The Egg", Christmas tree and many other beautiful modern builds and climbing walls. We had dinner at the Park Grill overlooking the rink.

This place always has great activities. We went to a free concert last time we were in town. Beautiful scenery downtown with the buildings in the background. Well kept up and plenty of security so don't have much to worry about.

I visit at least once a year, such a great place to spend a day! I'm from Wisconsin and have traveled there by train and car. Parking is close and not that expensive, it is also a bit more convenient to have a car then rely on the trains. The park is full of things to see, be sure to... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
