Where to watch the sunrise

Tomorrow is my last day in USA after travelling the country for 5 weeks

I would like to watch the sunrise somewhere on the last day. Any recommendations on where to go.

FYI: I am staying in the downtown area

Thanks in advance

Oak street beach. North avenue beach... Anywhere on the east side by the lake. The farther north you go you will get a better view of the skyline.

The lakefront beaches: North Ave, Oak,Street, Ohio Beach. The Museum Campus. The lakefront parks: Lincoln, Navy Pier, Millenium Maggie Daley and Grant Parks. After sunrise go into the Loop: Daley Plaza, the River Walk, State Street... for the sharp shadows of sunrise in the city.

I'll add that you might consider going well before the actual sunrise time of 6:38 tomorrow. Today's pre-sunrise was pretty spectacular.
