Took the sunset cruise - an amazing clear night; the sun set between two beautiful buildings along the city's skyline.

Very nice excursion on the ship. If you’ve never been on a large sailing ship this would be a lifetime adventure at least to say you’ve been on one. Lotta great information about Chicago even for Chicagoans the information that’s given is pretty much unknown.

What a surprise--no crowds, no squawking tour guide telling us the history of Chicago, no loud, never-ending motor sound. Just a quiet, serene sail on Lake Michigan watching the sun go down over the skyline. Fun part was that crew asked for volunteers to help...More

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
