Free movies and concerts in the park, ice skating in the winter, the Bean...this park was designed with the people of the city in mind. It's the perfect place for locals and tourists alike to hang out, for a few minutes or a few hours.

Chi-town is a city is beautiful, there is no doubt about it. Adding to this landscape is the manicured lawns of Millennium Park. Nestled in the heart of downtown, this park allows for picturesque walks and is an instagrammers playground. Featuring many heavyweight art installations, the one that stood out for me was "Cloud Gate" aka The Bean. No matter what time of day you get to check out  this crazy installation you will stop dead in your tracks. Take your time, view it from all angles and snap away. This park can certainly go toe-to-toe with Central Park and I cant wait to get back there.

One of the most enjoyable and cheap things you could do in the city is grab a blanket and sit down in front of the Pritzker Pavilion for a free concert. Can't summer be all year?

While it might be a tourist spot, Millennium Park is still one of my favorites in the city. The architecture and landscaping is amazing and the stadium is a wonderful place to listen to music, view movies or just hang out in.

Millennium Park is the type of beautifully designed, well curated central location that every city should aspire to. Sure, it's full of tourists taking selfies in front of the Bean, but that sculpture, along with the rest of the park's attractions, are simply too cool to pass up. Crowds aside, the Band Shell is a lovely spot to see a show in the summer. The Lurie Garden is absolutely gorgeous in the spring, with its wildflower blooms set against the Chicago skyline. I think what makes the park so compelling is that it manages to stay compelling all year round, even on the coldest of winter days.
