    • Museum Campus

      Concerts at Northerly Island

      Dispatch, Zac Brown Band and the B-52's are just a few of the bands to grace the stage at Charter One Pavillion. View this summer's concert calendar HERE.

      Navy Pier

      While in Town Restaurants & Bars For Your Convenience Getting Around Chicago's Tourism Website Take a walk along this historic 50-acre playground, Navy Pier. In the mood for a movie? Visit the pier's I-MAX Theatre. There are several restaurants including Riva, the Billy Goat Tavern and Margaritaville. Local knowledge - you can take Landshark and Margaritaville drinks in a to-go cup for a walk around the pier. Althought Columbia has the best view of the fireworks, they are launched from a barge off Navy Pier every Wednesday and Saturday night in the summer.

      Willis Tower & the John Hancock Building

      Head to the Skydeck of the country's tallest building. Don't fall off the Ledge! View the city below your feet -quite literally- from the 103rd Floor. Fun fact: on a clear day, you can see four states. Tickets are $18/person. Don't feel like paying for an elevator ride? Enjoy drinks and dining in The Signature Room on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Building.
