A lot of fun and very informative. We got to see a lot. Luckily we had great weather. There were so many areas of Chicago that I didn't know existed. It was amazing to see Lake Michigan with city buildings in the background. I especially liked being able to spend time at the zoo.

I'm a jaded local who arranged this for some out of town guests who had taken similar tours in other cities and really enjoyed them. We signed on for their 3 hr. lakefront tour, their most popular. Truly had a great time. Our guides were knowledgeable, personable and really concerned about everyone's comfort and safety. They were really what made... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
