Navy Pier Chicago

The historic Navy Pier is Chicago's lakefront playground, boasting 50 acres of parks, promenades, gardens, shops and attractions.

Head to Pier Park for a thrilling ride on the 150-foot Ferris wheel, offering staggering views over Lake Michigan and the city, or take a cruise boat ride along the lake. For something a little more sedate, visit Landshark Beer Garden to unwind to the sounds of live music.

If you've got little ones to entertain, the Chicago Children's Museum has dozens of lively exhibits to keep them entertained, while the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre offers cutting edge performances year-round.

When hunger strikes, head to the Family Pavilion food court or tuck in at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co.
