A Chicago trip would be less than perfect without a stroll to the end of the Navy Pier - a conglomeration of tourist attractions, exhibition halls, museums, amusement park, harbor cruises, theaters, sculptures, shops, restaurants, etc. Kids love the carousel, Ferris wheel, live music, and eclectic entertainment such as jugglers, comedians, and contortionists.
The Navy Pier is a great place to walk along. You could call it a tourist trap, however, you really do not need to spend in order to enjoy Chicago's Navy Pier and its amazing views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan.
