Millennium Park Tours

star-5
44 Reviews
Millennium Park
Located just a block away from Lake Michigan in the heart of downtown Chicago, Millennium Park showcases world-class art, music, architecture, and landscape design. Completed in 2004, the 24.5-acre (10-hectare) park is one of Chicago’s most popular destinations, drawing 25 million visitors per year. 

The Basics
There’s a lot to see and do in Millennium Park. Visitors can check out their reflection in the Cloud Gate—a steel sculpture affectionately nicknamed “The Bean” by Chicago locals; catch a live show in Harris Theater or Jay Pritzker Pavilion; visit the curvy, columned Millennium Monument in Wrigley Square; take a stroll down Chase Promenade; watch giant projected videos of facial expressions on the Crown Fountain tower blocks; and explore numerous other outdoor attractions. On sunny days, the Great Lawn and 100-foot (30-meter) Running Table are ideal picnicking spots.

Millennium Park is a true Chicago highlight, so most guided city tours stop there. Visit on a hop-on hop-off bus tour to explore at your own pace, or see the park on an electric bike, segway, or bus tour. Visitors can also admire Millennium Park’s dramatic nighttime lighting on a sunset or evening excursion, or head to the top of Willis Tower’s Skydeck to see the park from above. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There are several concession stands in the park, as well as Park Grill—a 300-seat eatery located in McCormick Tribune Plaza. 
  • Rollerblading and skateboarding are not allowed in the park.
  • The park is fully wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs can be borrowed from the Millennium Park Welcome Center.

How to Get There
Millennium Park is located in downtown Chicago’s Loop district, on the northwest side of Grant Park. It is bordered by North Michigan Avenue, Columbus Drive, Randolph Street, and Monroe Drive. The easiest way to reach the park is by public transit—multiple city buses stop nearby, as does Chicago’s elevated train. 

When to Get There
Millennium Park is open year-round, but Chicago’s weather is most pleasant in spring, summer, and fall. Summer visitors can enjoy the park’s concert series and cool off at the Crown Fountain splash park, while winter visitors can skate at McCormick Tribune Ice Rink. 

Nearby Attractions
Millennium Park is part of Chicago’s larger Grant Park. Nearby attractions include the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum of Natural History, John G. Shedd Aquarium, and Adler Planetarium. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops in the adjacent downtown area. 
Address: 201 E. Randolph Street, The Loop, Chicago 60602, USA
Hours: Open daily 6am - 11pm
Admission: Free
