Description: Also known as ‘The Bean’!

Before I started my travel list, I knew of some stuff up in Chicago. I had seen photos of the Bean/Cloud Gate but never knew it was in my home state. So naturally I went up there with a group of friends to check it out.

This awesome attraction… sculpture… mirror…. whatever you want to call it is located in Millennium Park. We walked around the park that day and I must tell you.. that park holds a lot of cool things. Ever watch Married… with Children? The Buckingham Fountain from the shows opener is located here.

As for Cloud Gate, it’s a sight to behold. The mirrored surface was clean. Everyone was talking selfies. You can walk under it and it’s mirrored all from top to bottom, left to right, back to front.

If you are visiting Chicago, you owe it to yourself to check out Millennium Park and the fun things it has inside. Take a selfie at Cloud Gate. I double dog DARE you!
