Things to Do in Chicago

Cloud Gate (also known as The Bean) at Millennium Park

Ask a Chicagoan on the street to point you to the Cloud Gate and expect to get a quizzical stare in response. But bring up “The Bean” and most city-dwellers will smile and tell you exactly where this beloved outdoor structure sits in Millennium Park. The 110-ton seamless stainless steel installation was created by British artist Anish Kapoor and inspired by liquid mercury. Snap plenty of photos of what’s reflected in The Bean -- the skyscrapers, the sunshine, the inevitable marriage proposal, and yourself! Click here for more information.

One thought on “Things to Do in Chicago with Kids

  1. We are creating a series of fun and educational events for kids this summer. Can you help get the word out?

    Our next event is a Mesopotamian-style murder mystery party at the Oriental Institute on August 3 (1PM) , where we solve the mystery using only Hammurabi’s Law Code.

    Event information is at CulturalCache.com/events

    The clues are posted at: http://youtu.be/cH3CipuRMBQ

    Tickets are on sale at: http://murder-mystery-mesopotamia-oriental-institute.eventbrite.com/

    Tickets cover museum entry, the event, and a picnic with Mesopotamian style snacks and drinks afterwards. $39/$25 (adults/children)

    Sincerely,

    Tobin
