2 MIL­LEN­NIUM PARK

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS IN -

For a true celebration of ar­chi­tec­ture, art and the out­doors, head north on Michi­gan Av­enue to the 24-acre Mil­len­nium Park. The park opened in 2004 af­ter six years of con­struc­tion, and is char­ac­ter­ized by var­i­ous mon­u­men­tal sculp­tures. At Crown Foun­tain, the faces of a thou­sand Chicagoans are dis­played in ro­ta­tion on 50-foot tow­ers, with their mouths spurt­ing wa­ter. Most stun­ning of all is the 110-ton stain­less steel sculp­ture Cloud Gate, de­signed by Bri­tish artist Anish Kapoor to re­flect the city’s peo­ple, sky­line and clouds.
