AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It opened four years behind schedule, but the wait was worth it: Millennium Park has fast become one of Chicagoans’ most beloved green spaces. One of its most famous attractions is Cloud Gate, a 110-ton shiny steel sculpture that most locals affectionately call “the Bean;” the other is the Crown Fountain, which consists of two giant video screens that sandwich a reflecting pool. The screens display the faces of actual Chicagoans, who purse their lips at intervals to “spit” out a stream of water in which kids frolic below. In summer, sprawl on the lawn by the Jay Pritzker Pavilion to hear free concerts; in winter, take a turn on the ice rink or drink hot chocolate in the on-site Park Grill restaurant.
