Things to Do in Chicago

Chicago is our kind of town: From its rise from the ashes following the Great Fire of 1871 to its stellar skyscrapers and unique style of (what else!) pizza, Chi-Town offers plenty to do … and eat!

Navy Pier

Take the kids to this 3,300-foot-long pier on the Chicago shoreline of Lake Michigan. A city fixture since 1916, Navy Pier now stands as Chicago’s No. 1 tourist attraction. Enjoy a dinner cruise, see fireworks at night, take in an IMAX movie and hop aboard the 150-foot-tall Navy Pier Ferris wheel -- Chicago was the first city in the world to erect one!
