- Visit the Bean
- Take lots of pictures of, with, around, under, etc. of said Bean
Or more accurately, Cloud Gate, which is what it’s actually called. This sculpture lives in Millennium Park and gives you an interesting reflection of Chicago. It’s 33 feet high, 66 feet long, 42 feet wide, and weighs 100 tons. There’s also a 12-foot high arch underneath that you can walk through.
You should definitely go on a sunny day. You’ll still see the reflections on a cloudy day but of course, it won’t be as nice and bright. I’ve been told that it offers an amazing nighttime view as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to make the trek after dark so I guess that would be my excuse for going back to Chicago!
