About Cloud Gate

Best known as “the Bean,” Cloud Gate is instantly recognizable to everyone from lifelong Chicago residents to first-time tourists. It’s 110 tons of steel plates welded together into a massive sloping bean-shape. It’s smooth, shiny, and reflective. The entire surface is shined twice a day to keep it fingerprint-free and ready for selfies. When Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor unveiled his piece, he had no idea it would become one of the most photographed landmarks in the world. 80% of Cloud Gate reflects the sky, and it is one of the best ways to capture the Chicago skyline on film (or with your smartphone). You can’t leave Chicago without this bucket-list selfie, so plan a stop on your tour. Our booking specialists can help you work Cloud Gate into your itinerary.

Why charter a bus to visit Cloud Gate

Different types of trips will require different types of bus rentals. If you’re planning wedding photos at Millennium Park, rent a Chicago bus to transport your bridesmaids and groomsmen. If you’ve got a Chicago landmark tour in mind, charter a coach bus. It has more amenities to keep your group comfortable on long trips. Cloud Gate is located in one of the most popular tourist districts in Chicago, so have your bus driver drop you off and pick you up when you’re done.

About the location and the surrounding area

Cloud Gate is the centerpiece of Millennium Park, an area on the north side of Grant Park. This corner is characterized by public art and unique architectural features. Besides Cloud Gate, there’s Crown Fountain, the Millennium Monument Peristyle, the Boeing Galleries, and BP Bridge. Every structure is a striking work of art. Take the Jay Pritzker Pavilion for example. It operates as a theater for free concerts and dance shows, but even when there’s nothing playing, it attracts visitors who want a photo with its Frank Gehry metal knots. Two major institutes, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Culture Center, are close by. They support the artistic feel of the area, giving home to art scholars who are interested in the kind of ambitious public art that makes Millennium Park special.
