This a cool place in Chicago, but there isn't a ton to do there, I would give it a couple of hours and move on.

Nice place for a walk. Even when weather is not great, you could stay inside the building and still enjoy the view. Lots of coll eateries inside.

Cool place to take the family; restaurants, shopping and boat tours. Better in the spring and summer than the cold months. More stuff open.

We went to check it out. It’s like a mall on the inside and a park on the outside. Fun place to check out once.

Prefer a good day, when the sun is shining, and you have a few hours to spend enjoying! Public transportation to Grand Avenue, then East to the lakefront. Navy Pier is right on Lake Michigan. As one walks out to the end, you'll see many places to enjoy the sights, and Great food! Turn around and enjoy the view of downtown Chi-town! Quite a sight, like none other in the U.S.A. Take the time to visit, you'll carry away great memories, and have time to enjoy the time-you'll never forget!
