Originally established to celebrate the 2000 millennium year the site was opened 4 years later in 2004.
Chicago gets hot in the summer. Cool down at Millennium Park, where giant images of Chicagoans’ faces, broadcasted on a 50-foot-high glass tower, emit a cool fountain from their mouths.
“The Bean” is another captivating structure (its official name is Cloud Gate), with its gleaming polished steel commanding a photographic fun with reflections.
The otherworldly Jay Pritzker Pavilion hosts several can’t-miss music festivals.
All in all, Millennium Park is the perfect icon for the truly American city of Chicago.
