Make a stop at The Bean in Chicago

Located in the heart of Chicago, IL, Cloud Gate aka "The Bean" forms a shiny silver archway into Millennium Park. Widely known and visited by both locals and tourists, the sculpture and park itself are a must stop when in Chicago. 

The Bean sculpture was inspired by liquid mercury and is made up of 168 stainless steel plates welded together and then highly polished to give it that flawless shine and the illusion of it being one seamless piece of art. The shape of the structure while is fun for the obscure and silly selfies, when you step back to take in the entire structure a wide landscape shot of the city is what you'll see. 

Locals and visitors love stopping her for a picnic in the park, taking in a relaxing moment in the Zen Garden, listen to live music during one of the city's many music festivals, grab a bit at the Plaza at Park Grill, or watch a show at Jay Pritzker Pavilion. The pavilion was created by the notable architect, Frank Gehry, and provides not only a beautiful stainless canopy over the lawn but the a perfect acoustically sound structure.
