Summary : If you visit Chicago you must go see the Bean ! See below for why !

I have heard the bean mentioned whenever people talked about Chicago. To me it just looked like a reflective surface that people made funny faces for .

In person it is a really cool structure. Beautifully designed . From the different sides you can see the reflection of the city skyline. Its official name is The Cloud Gate.

You can even go underneath the bean as well. It is forever reflected over and over.
