Next to the "Bean" sculpture, this pavilion is the perfect place to snap a few pictures of the city — including the famous Willis Tower far off in the distance. In the fall, when the leaves start to change, the park becomes abundant with vibrant reds, yellows, oranges and greens that pop against the monochrome, industrial skyline.

This image was taken from the northeast corner of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, with a west-facing view of Millennium Park, Willis Tower and the city skyline. If you start at the Bean, walk toward the silver pavilion near the grassy area to get to this spot.
Before visiting, make sure to check the pavilion's schedule to verify that they don't have any shows happening that day: http://www.jaypritzkerpavilion.com/.
