posted in Windy City Secrets
Navy Pier
It's a nice place to visit, it has a few cool rides and a nice stained glass museum, and there's an IMAX 3D movie theater. But when all is said and done, Navy Pier is nothing but a tourist trap. There's …

John Hancock Observatory
It has the best views in the city, and it's cheaper and has shorter lines than the Sears Tower. It's also more conveniently located for tourists, right on Michigan Avenue while the Sears Tower is located …

Harry Caray

Millennium Park
Between the ampitheater, the incredible sculptures and fountains, the gardens, and the skating rink, this is just one of the most incredible public parks you'll ever see. You would never think it was …

Navy Pier
