Cloud Gate in Millenium Park
No visit to Chicago would be complete without seeing Anish Kapoor's amazing Cloud Gate sculpture, affectionately known by locals as "the Bean." Children and adults alike will be mesmerized by the reflections of the skyline and themselves in the shiny sculpture. Make sure to brave the crowds and make your way under the sculpture to see yourself reflected in every direction. This is one place you won't want to visit without a camera. Visiting towards the end of the day is ideal so that kids can see the changing light effects as the sun sets on the sculpture. The Cloud Gate is a wonderful way to introduce children to the art of sculpture.
