If you find yourself outside on a sunny day in chicago, I would recommend heading over to Millennium Park. The park is in the heart of chicago, near Michigan Ave (a great place to window shop at). Millennium Park offers some really unique art and architecture. There are these tall fountain blocks with moving pictures on them. It is kind of like a mini times square but more artistic and less A.D.D.

Anyway, it offers a unique retreat and true insight to the chicago culture and art scene. I would seriously recommend checking it out.

This is a new park in downtown Chicago established around 2004. It is about 24.5 acres and has several really outstanding outdoor sculptures - Cloud Gate by British artist Anish Kapoor, a bean shaped highly polished stainless steel sculpture 66 ft long and 33 ft tall, is one of the most amazing and FUN sculpture anywhere (where else would anyone associate the word "fun" with a piece of sculpture?), the Crown Fountain is also a great piece of art. The outdoor concert hall designed by the famous architech Frank Gehry, and the Serpertine Bridge.One can even rent a bike and ride around, but we didn't. I am sure when there is a concert going on in the summer, it would be even more popular place than in the fall. There is a welcome center, and you can also download audio guides of the various parts of the park over the internet, which we did. I highly recommend it if you want to learn a bit more about the park.One can easily spend a couple of hours here just walking and looking around, we didn't even spend much time in the garden, where I am sure plant lovers will enjoy.Before or going to the Art Institute of Chicago, one should allocate some time here if you have not been before.
