"The call it "the Bean"" Millennium Park Tip by spgood301

Millennium Park, Chicago: 92 reviews and 261 photos

  Cloud Gate. Looks like a giant egg to me.
by spgood301

This is Cloud Gate, a sculpture in Millennium Park. I don't quite know what it is, but it looks like a clear, silver egg. If you really look close, you'll see some guy taking pictures. That's me.

Now, if you see the guy who picked my pocket while I was taking the picture, please let me know. Just kidding.

Cloud Gate is probably more commonly known as "The Bean". In the prime tourist months, folks from all over the world gather around it to have their picture taken amid the Chicago skyline in quite a unique way. In fact, the Bean is unique to Chicago, & a fun place to take the kids too. It's especially striking at night, with all the city lights surrounding it.

I went back again and again. Guess I needed my Bean.
