Half-mile-long Navy Pier is one of Chicago’s most-visited attractions, brandishing a 196ft Ferris haggle jamboree rides ($9 to $18 each), an IMAX theater, a brew nursery and loads of chain eateries. A redesign included open courts, execution spaces, and free social programming. Local people despite everything moan over its commercialization, however, its lakefront view and cool winds can’t be beaten. The firecrackers show on summer Wednesdays (9:30 pm) and Saturdays (10:15 pm) are a treat as well.
The Chicago Children’s Museum is additionally on the dock, just like a few pontoon journey administrators. In summer, attempt the Shoreline Water Taxi (www.shorelinesightseeing.com) for a great ride to the Museum Campus (grown-up/kid Monday through Thursday $8/4, Friday through Sunday $10/5). Polk Bros Park, at the dock’s passageway, has a wellspring you can sprinkle in and execution gardens with the expectation of complimentary shows and motion pictures.
