CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – It’s officially called “Cloud Gate” but if you’re from Chicago you know it’s really called “The Bean.” It might be the most entertaining inanimate object ever. With no seams, it’s essentially a gigantic fun house mirror in Millennium Park.
Take your picture in front of it, under it, or way up close. Take a wedding picture, a Facebook picture, or a picture of the city skyline reflected in The Bean. You can play with The Bean for hours.
Winter or summer. Day or night. It never gets old. Like an old friend, it’s always waiting for you to come back and visit. You’re my boy, Bean!
