Rent one of the cheap bikes and have a blast on the trail. Great views and lots to do between the pier and the museums.

We were in Chicago for the weekend and spent a good part of one day walking the Riverwalk and Lakefront Trails. Nice walk, clean, safe and enjoyable.

My wife and I were in Chicago for our anniversary weekend. Part of one day was spent walking along the river and down the lakeside. It was a very enjoyable walk and well worth the time.

Walked on this path several times during my visit. Great for taking photos of the skyline and the lake front. Especially for the Air & Water show this past weekend.

This is one of our favorite parts of Chicago. It was awesome to see so many people be active on this gorgeous trail. Every city should have a trail as beautiful as this!

There are now split trails - one for cyclists, one for pedestrians. That greatly reduces the number of collisions from people distracted by the great views. You can start or stop almost anywhere. We walked from Soldier Field through the museum campus on to the...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

There is a bike rental concession located in Millenium Park right off of Randolph. It is about a block from the lakefront path. There are numerous places to rent the Divvy bikes, but they do not include helmets.
