Millenium Park Chicago Why you've got to go: It's an amazing green gathering place, with music, dance, art, family festivals, and wide open spaces for playing -- all a walk or el ride from other top Chicago tourist attractions. What to do: Strike a pose in the reflective Cloud Gate sculpture (affectionately known as the Bean) -- it's like a giant funhouse mirror. Splash around in the cheeky, animated Crown Fountain, which literally makes faces at you. Join one of the free activities
