Millennium Park is one of the most extraordinary public spaces in the world. More than a park, it is a breathtaking showcase for the visual and performing arts and a permanent homage to the vitality and creativity of this world-class city. The centerpiece of the park is the Frank Gehry-designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion, the most sophisticated outdoor concert venue of its kind in the United States. You can't miss one of the world's largest outdoor sculptures by British artist Anish Kapoor and the Crown Fountain designed by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa. Be sure to admire the Lurie Garden, a distinctive blend of spatial structure, plantings and lighting. Summer brings a stellar line-up of concerts at Jay Pritzker Pavilion and the ice-skating rink and Christmas lights emerge every winter. Everyone is welcome to snap a selfie at the Cloud Gate sculpture, or 'The Bean.' Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy!
