Runners, cyclists, roller-bladers, dog-walkers, pedestrians, sightseers, swimmers, sun worshippers, boaters, and sports teams! There’s a place for everyone on Chicago’s lakefront.
Be sure to visit the jewel of Chicago’s lakefront, the 50-acre Navy Pier, which offers an assortment of parks, gardens, shops, restaurants, and attractions including the Shakespeare Theater, Omni-max Theater, Chicago Children’s Museum, 15-story Ferris wheel and musical carousel, dinner and cruise boats, outdoor entertainment stages, and special events held year-round.
Chicago is home to dozens of museums, including the Chicago Art Institute, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum. There are also several smaller and special interest museums like the Museum of Broadcast Communications, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the DuSable Museum of African American History.
