The "tourist attractions" in Chicago are sometimes best enjoyed by local Chicagoans. Take Navy Pier for instance...The Pepsi Tall Ships Festival is a great time for the family (and singles alike), and you still have through this weekend to enjoy it.
We had fantastic weather and there was plenty to do for the kids in the festival areas. Ryne chants along with "Captain Willie".
I heard one passerby express "This is a perfect Chicago day".
Like many city museums, parks, festivals and special events Navy Pier is fun and easy to get to by Lake Shore Drive, trains, buses or walking for Chicago families.
