With a wide range of activities for the family, plenty of shops and restaurants, it’s the perfect location for a day out. It’s also a brilliant place to take photographs. The pier itself is very interesting and picturesque, but turn your back on it for a moment and you can capture some amazing shots of the Chicago skyline.
