So much to do here! I love taking pictures by the bean. A short walk from the bean is the little towers with a sprinkler. Kids and adults love getting wet there on a hot summer day. There is also the Maggie Daley Park you can walk to. Awesome park my kids did not want to leave. They also have movies and concerts at the pavilion. I recommend everyone to visit Millennium Park!

Nice set of grassy spaces, good for sports. Most of my time here was during Lollapalooza, which was a blast. The park is a quite large space to walk across, but they seem to maintain it pretty well and clean up after festivals. Buckingham Fountain is also a nice place to visit in the summer.

Garfield Park Conservatory is gorgeous year round. It's a great escape (with free parking and nearby public transportation) from the cold winter and a fun trip in the warmer months. The desert room is my favorite, but I love it all. They have seasonal exhibits, so there's something new almost every time you go.
