It's a very lively place. Busy with tourists, but worth the walk. Wonder around. Grab a coffee and seat on a bench on a sunny winter day!

Millennium Park is a wonderful park in Chicago. We love visiting the park whenever we are traveling in Chicago. During winter, it is nice to do ice skating in the park.

Very big place. In mild weather season, you must see almost all the Chicago citizens here. Good place to relax and blow away worry.

Beautiful anytime but this time was at night. The ice skaters were fun to watch or join if you dare. We had a wonderful time and had some great views of the skyline!
