This is the 3rd time I have been on board this sight-seeing tour boat. First time I had vegan food. We stayed dockside due to the rough weather. Maybe that was the smelly problem.

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
