Tourist Thursday (... ?): Millennium Park

Bad blogger. Missed last Tuesday.  It's been a busy week in class, so I didn't get to do a honest to goodness touristy thing last week. But here are some photos from Millennium Park, the Bean (it's technical name is "Cloud Gate") and Pritzker Pavilion.

Despite how young the Park is (2006, 4 years after it was supposed to open), it appears to have become a symbol of Chicago, as the natives have told me.

It's a quick, free tourist thing. It's generally busy (there were three wedding photo shoots while we were there) but its a must.

Lay/sit down for a photo at your own risk. It's a cool photo opp but its still laying down on a sidewalk. Ew
