On a list of things you should do before you die, a trip to Chicago should be in the works.

While I sure hope you're around for a good long time, I'm also sure you should probably think again if this is one place you need to see before kicking the bucket.

Have you ever been out to a concert, movie, or just dinner somewhere, and while everyone raved about it you were just kind of "meh?"

It happens, and when visiting what Espresso Communications via MSN has deemed as one of the 20 Most America Landmarks to Visit Before You Die, I felt the same way.

Not that it wasn't impressive to look at it, I just was like "Cool, I've seen it. Now let's move on."

Because outside of some seriously impressive Instagram pics, Cloud Gate a.k.a. The Bean in Chicago, there's no reason to hang out for more than a minute or two and then see what else is going on.

The Bean has been called the "Biggest Tourist Trap" in Chicago and one of the "Most Overrated" landmarks on Earth.

However, Espresso Communication sees it differently:

Officially titled Cloud GateThe Bean in Chicago is a giant metal outdoor art installation originally unveiled in 2004. Since then, it’s quickly become one of Chicago's most iconic sights.

Again, it's a "sight." You see it, and then you're like "Now what?" Luckily The Bean is in Chicago so there's plenty of other options.
