Bobby's bike hike is a great way to see downtown Chicago in 2 to 3 hours which includes trying Chicago's beat known cheap eats like deep pan pizza and the 'dog'. A great value tour, I would not hesitate to recommend to friends.

We went on a seasonal holiday walk with Bobby's Bike Hike. It was fantastic! Our guide was easy going and personable. We very much enjoyed the knowledge about Chicago that he was able to share and he did a great job looking out for all of us. I would use this company again in a second!

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
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 the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
