Cloud Gate reviews
I always wanted to check this out and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s so smooth and mirror like. I love how it reflects the horizon still level even though it’s so curvy. Wish I could have gotten closer.... more »
Great views, good exercise, nearby food options, parking was a hit or miss, the sculptures/monuments were great. more »
A beautiful bean, mixed with some great views makes this one of the coolest spots in the city. If you have a hour lunch it's worth it to come down here and eat your lunch with a view. Beautiful structure not to mention the surrounding area having hundreds of different things. Mini-golf, ice skating, rock climbing, etc. Cool park with cool activities.
This incredible sculpture which is usually misnamed the bean. Is actually called the gateway cloud. I've been photographing it for many years. Is a fabulous refractive surface which shows all of the buildings on Michigan Avenue in a brilliant uplifting way. Chicago has many great attributes this is certainly one of them. I recommend it strongly that you see this for yourself welcome to Chicago!
