Visiting The Cloud Gate At Millennium Park

One of the most iconic architectural pieces in Chicago is none other than the Cloud Gate, or better known as “The Bean”. The stainless steel structure may be the most well-known landmark in the 25 acres of Millennium Park, but it’s certainly not the only sight worth seeing.

In between your shopping trips to Michigan Avenue and State Street, you can have the chance to experience the amazing green space in the middle of the city. Nestled just off of Michigan Avenue, Millennium Park may be busy with tourists in the summer months, but it is still a buzz worth visiting year-round as guests flock to see the classic Chicago architecture and epic skyline views.

In the winter months, bring the family and lace up your skates for a breathtaking time ice skating amid twinkling tree lights at the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink. After warming up with a cup of hot cocoa, you can escape to Lurie Garden which is an urban oasis not far from the rink.

Millennium Park is part of Grant Park, which is home to the Buckingham Fountain, Maggie Daley Park, and known for many fun events like Lollapalooza.

No matter how you spend your weekend in Chicago this holiday season, don’t miss one of Chicago’s biggest landmarks!

Pro-tip: arrive in the early morning hours for the best selfie opportunity with The Bean.
