No doubt, you'll also want to take a walk to Cloud Gate, aka “The Bean”. It is one of Chicago’s most popular sights. The monumental work of art anchors the City’s downtown park, reflecting the city's famous skyline and the surrounding green space. It was unveiled in 2004 in Millennium Park. The Bean is 33 feet high, 42 feet wide, and 66 feet long. It weighs about 110 tons — roughly the same as 15 adult elephants. Other landmarks in the city include Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile, the Willis “Sears” Tower and Lincoln Park Zoo.
The city lies within the typical hot-summer humid continental climate, and experiences four distinct seasons. Summers are hot and humid, with frequent heat waves. Winters are relatively cold and snowy, although the city typically sees less snow and rain in winter than that experienced in the eastern Great Lakes region; blizzards do occur, as in 2011.
