Just a really fun place to take pictures. It was pretty warm yesterday and the reflections showed beautifully in the sun.

High crime area. Last night a 16 year old was shot and killed at 7:30 pm. This is an iconic tourist attraction in Chicago but with all if the crime, just beware. Hopefully that will change and folks can feel safe enjoying it again. Great spot right in the center of Chicago.

The best time to go if you are walking is the middle of the day. There is a lot of crime In Chicago and a lot of shootings everyday while I was there the middle of the day was the safest time it seemed

Cloud Gate, aka "the Bean," is one of the top tourist attractions in the city of Chicago. That is why we went there. Still trying to understand the appeal. It is basically a large, bean shaped mirror. Now you know so you do not need to go yourselves.

Yes, we walked to the bean, just a few blocks from the river and easily accessible from the Loew’s Hotel. Great experience and fun place for a picnic.

My mom and I took a pit stop at THE BEAN on our way to visit the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Not only did it reflect our beautiful faces, it reflected the Windy city behind us leaving us with an amazing view. I 100% recommend stopping at the bean (or Cloud Gate as some other more boring people may refer it as) any time you are driving through Chi town!

If there are 100 people in downtown Chicago, 50 of them them are here. It is a truly amazing people draw.

Must see if you are in the area. Reflection of the city is beautiful but don’t forget to walk underneath! It is mesmerizing!

An interesting sculpture and fun to try and take pictures with. I'm not 100% sure it's worth coming out for on its own (unless you're a modern art enthusiast) but if you're going to Millennium Park already then I recommend stopping by.
