Chicago - Near North & Navy Pier (PDF Chapter)
The Loop may be where Chicago fortunes are made, but the Near North is where those fortunes are spent. Shops, restaurants and amusements abound. This is also where the majority of hotels roll out their welcome mats.
- walk on the boat-bedecked Navy Pier and take in the views – especially from the stomach-churning 196ft Ferris wheel
- heft a gooey slice of pizza from Giordano’s that’s even mightier than deep-dish
- shop with the frenzied masses along the busy Magnificent Mile, a stretch of road jam-packed with retailers from Burberry to Nike to Uniqlo
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities and the Waterfront.
