Start your tour of Chicago at Millennium Park, considered one of the largest roof gardens in the world. Sitting atop a railroad yard and a network of underground parking garages, the park features several artistic highlights, most notably the popular "Bean," a legume-shaped, stainless-steel sculpture designed by artist Anish Kapoor. The sculpture's surfaces reflect and distort the city's skyline, making it a favorite backdrop for photographs. Don't miss the 15 m (50 ft) video sculpture/fountain, composed of black granite and light-emitting diodes that display digital images of Chicagoans puckering their lips and appearing to spit water. Take a look at our Chicago day trip app to schedule your visit to Millennium Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

I love Millennium Park!!! In the middle of all that hustle & bustle, a place to relax, have a little fun, and really watch people interact & smile together. The sculptures are truly poetry, the way they bring people together. The city of Chicago did an outstanding job with this park. Such a wonderful place. 😉💕
Definitely needs to be on your bucket list! This park was so much bigger than anticipated and perfect for families. The bean is the most impressive thing there. My only suggestion is visiting here whilst its a bit warmer outside this way its much more enjoyable and you can spend more time. Keep in mind its usually filled with people!
