Millennium ParkOne thing about Chicago, we have some pretty awesome parks, and Millennium Park is definitely one of them. In addition to the Bean and Crown Fountain (with the towering 50ft faces), take advantage of the nice weather to stroll through Lurie Garden, a fragant, floral treasure tucked into the center of Millennium Park. Then when summer rolls around, definitely head back for the weekly Free Concert series at Pritzker Pavilion!
