One of the things that makes Chicago such a gem is Lake Michigan. Chicagoans love to be on the water when the weather is nice, so to get the full experience on your visit, you’ll want to take advantage of a boat tour! Luckily, there are several cruises and tours available that depart from Navy Pier perfect for every vacation vibe!
Get to Navy Pier early and enjoy a drink at the Miller Lite Beer Garden or grab a seasonal popsicle and a fresh pretzel from Ozzie’s Pops and Pretzels. Then don’t forget to grab that selfie with the skyline!
You’ll probably build up an appetite after an adventure like that. Luckily there are lots of places along the Pier to stop and grab a bite. Keep the water theme going with some homestyle seafood dishes from Bubba Gump Shrimp.
Make sure to stop by Dippin’ Dots or Garrett Popcorn to grab a treat for the ride home! If you’ve worked up an appetite, there are lots of restaurants right at the Pier to choose from. With $29 flat rate parking, you can park your car worry-free and spend the day enjoying everything there is to offer.
If you’re not ready for the night to end after the cruise, stop by Offshore, the nation’s largest rooftop bar, to take in more of the city with your love in one hand and a tasty cocktail in the other.
No matter what type of day you’re planning, it’s going to be a great one when you plan it at Navy Pier. With plenty of outdoor spaces to keep you entertained while you wait for your boat to board, your exciting day on the water will begin as soon as you step onto the Pier.
