Located in downtown Chicago on Michigan Ave., the 2.5-acre Millennium Park is an extraordinary showplace for Chicago’s diverse art, music, architecture, and landscape design. Surrounding the dazzling Jay Pritzker Pavilion stand astonishing works of art, including Cloud Gate, a mammoth stainless steel sculpture, the Crown Fountain and the precedent-setting Lurie Garden. In addition to inspiring works of art and architecture, Chicago’s world-class attraction offers ice skating and alfresco dining.
Jay Pritzker Pavilion-With its soaring steel ribbons above the stage and state of the art canopied sound system over the lawn, this is a breathtaking design statement that also happens to be a marquee performance venue.
Crown Fountain– The towering waterfall bookends bearing digital images of acutal Chicagoans have proven to be a popular and relaxing gathering place for visitors of all ages.
Cloud Gate-With its brilliant curves mirroring both the skyline above and curious onlookers below, it didn’t take long for this massive reflective obelisk, affectionately and unofficially known as “the bean”, to be embraced as a true symbol of the city.
