Chicago in the Evening

One of my favorite things about spending the past few days in Chicago has been enjoying the city in the evening.

We spent time Thursday and Friday night in Millennium Park, a part of Chicago's famous Grant Park, listening to music and letting the children run around. There are free jazz concerts on Thursday nights during the summer and on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra plays as part of The Grant Park Musical Festival. It's also free for those that sit in the lawn area.

The Cloud Gate sculpture (which Jack said looks like a big bean) is a major attraction. Children and adults flock to it for photographs and to catch a glimpse of their reflection.  We saw hundreds of people both nights. There was even a couple taking pictures with a baby that couldn't have been more than a week or two old.

We spent our final evening walking along the River Walk and enjoying the cool breeze.

Chicago is definitely a walking city, and we've got the tired legs to prove it.
