Jay Pritzker Pavilion view of Millennium Park & Willis Tower

avatar
@mattbweitz
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.
