Navy Pier is one of Chicago’s most popular attractions and features more than 50 acres of parks, promenades, and attractions for visitors and residents to enjoy. A 150-foot Ferris wheel offers unparalleled views of Chicago’s breathtaking skyline and stunning cityscape. Entertainment options abound, from the Navy Pier IMAX Theater to the Chicago Children’s Museum and live entertainment year-round.
Skydeck Chicago (formerly Sears Tower Skydeck)
See breathtaking views of Chicago from the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building. No trip to Chicago is complete without a visit to Skydeck Chicago. Make it your first stop for a 360-degree view spanning over 50 miles and 4 states that you can’t get anywhere else. The skyscrapers, sports stadiums, sculptures, green roofs, the expanse of Lake Michigan and miles of lakeshore – that is what you will see from the top of the Sears Tower. A recent addition, The Ledge, affords visitors a one-of-a-kind experience of Chicago through a glass floor, 1,353 feet above street level!
Wrigley Field, Home of the Chicago Cubs
Nicknamed “The Friendly Confines”, Wrigley Field is the home of the The Chicago Cubs. Wrigley Field is known for its signature bricks and ivy and surrounding rooftop-bleacher buildings on Waveland and Sheffield Avenues. Wrigley Field is located in the heart of the Lakeview neighborhood, in an area affectionately known as “Wrigleyville.”
Chicago-Style Pizza and Hot Dogs
A visit to Chicago is not complete unless you’ve tried two of Chicago’s iconic cuisines: Chicago-style deep-dish pizza and the Chicago-style hot dog: a hot dog “with a salad on top” – specifically, yellow mustard, bright green relish, onions, tomato wedges, a pickle spear, sport peppers and a dash of celery salt, bulging from a steamed poppyseed bun.
