Chicago - Navy Pier

by sarahmfry, October 03, 2008
As dusk fell, we slowly made our way through the city towards Navy Pier. There are fireworks on weekends, but it's a fun place to go at night anytime.

Public transportation is the way to go! Just catch bus 124 to Navy Pier. They drop you off at the entrance and pick you up when you're ready to return to the heart of the city. It's like really, really cheap valet. Only not.

Navy Pier is definitely my favorite at night. Some of the shops and things do close down though, so evening-to-dark is a good time to go.

We didn't ride the Ferris Wheel this time, but it sure looked beautiful as always.

The view of the sparkling city from the pier is breathtaking. Peaceful. Spectacular.

After walking the full circle of the pier, we ate at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.

I loved the view from our patio table. Great place for people watching. Limo watching. City watching.

I just love watching.

We shared some kind of Sparkling-Mango-Something. It had a little bite.

Barbeque for David - a safe choice, of course.

I chose a cajun shrimp appetizer for my entree. It was cooked in a spicy butter sauce and served with crunchy garlic toast spears. Hungry?

We rode the late train back to the hotel - tired but happy.
