Friday Chi Fave: Millennium Park

The Bean.

Jay Pritzker Pavilion

Crown Fountain.

What do these things have in common?

They’re all must-see aspects of Chicago’s own Millennium Park.  In the heart of downtown Chicago, Millennium Park has been one of the top tourist destinations since opening in July 2004. Test out ice skating through the winter months at the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink (opens TODAY — November 18 for the season!!). Or enjoy cocktails and music dining al fresco at The Plaza at Park Grill in the summer. If al fresco dining isn’t your style, opt for the indoor Park Grill restaurant. You really cannot go wrong at Millennium Park. Having worked within feet of the park most of my 4 years in Chi, I love taking lunch breaks in the park, people watching and believe it or not … the Bean still gets me every time. So check it out. Stat. You are welcome in advance.


About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
