Chicago .......... Millennium Park

Millennium Park in Chicago was only a few blocks from our Hotel and it was well worth the walk.  Millennium Park is a new addition to the many sites to see in Chicago, and within the park there are many things to do and see.  The two attraction within Millennium Park that stood out to me the most were Pritzker Pavilion and the Bean.

Pritzker Pavilion is an amazing outdoor theater that has concerts throughout the warmer month, and they are free.  Besides the ample seating that you see in the picture below, there is a huge grass area with suspended speakers above it.  With this sound system the concert can be heard throughout Millennium Park and beyond.  I wish I had been there during one of these concert, it would have been a fantastic experience.




The Bean was also very interesting.  It is a stainless steel structure that has been polished to a mirror like finish.  As you can see it attracts many people, it is a real kick to see your reflection as you walk around it.




I did not know about Millennium Park before I went there, but now that i have, I plan on making it one of the places to go back to the next time that I am in Chicago, and I would highly recommend it to others.

I feel like I don't have to visit these sites, not that you have shared these photos. Only kidding.

Thank you for sharing them with all of us.

George, the next time you go to Chicago you have to let me know because I have lots of friends there that would love to show you around.  As you know, I'm from Chicago and I really enjoyed seeing the photos you posted.
