When we last visited Chicago, we walked the Lake Front Trail to see great views of Chicago. It's peaceful.

Such a nice place to walk or ride a bike. Or even get a bite to eat. Nice view of the city. I wished we had more time, so we could have walked further.

Nice trail to ride. Divvy bikes are easiest to get access to. Great to do on a nice summer day. Nice beaches to stop.

enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
