Tour description

Our meeting place on on the southeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street near the map of the park. Look for me I will have a red umbrella.

You will learn about the artists and architects of Wrigley Square, the McCormick-Tribune Ice Rink, Cloud Gate ("The Bean"), Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Pritzker Pavilion, BP BridgeMcDonald's Bike Station and the Harris Theater and a surprise for each guest at the end.

You won’t want to leave Chicago without taking my tour of Millennium Park. Come for the tour; stay for the surprise at the end. So, what are you waiting for? Join me; won’t you? 

NOTE: From now until the spring of 2024 Millennium Park is undergoing maintenance and repairs. As a result the access and view of "The Bean" / Cloud Gate will be limited or blocked.

    We will begin and end the tour on the southeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street (see map). There is no address to search for as it is the corner of the park, but it is right across Michigan Ave. from the Chicago Cultural Center (the former Chicago Public Library). I will be carrying a red umbrella. NOTE: On occasion access to the park will be through a security checkpoint. It is best to carry as little as possible with you.

I'm appreciated that she took care of all of people in advance because the cross was expected to be closed at the meeting point and park. Also, she gave us lot of information and a extra tour with explains and a small gift. This tour will be remembered as a part of the Chicago city. Thank you, Lynn.
