"I really do love this. The tone is particularly excellent – fun, conversational, often humorous. I never got bored reading it, which I often do when I read tourist guides." Tommy Hensel

But wait, there's more! This guide also includes Day At The Pier itinerary starters for families, couples, and rainy days, and suggestions for seeing Navy Pier on a budget. AND there are maps for dining and attractions (and the restrooms) so you'll know where to go before you even arrive.

"Just finished reading the guide, and I am ABSOLUTELY AMAZED at the content, accuracy, ease of use and comprehensive nature of the guide. I had a few pointers in my head before I started the guide, and you covered them all! I had NO clue that you could valet for so cheap if you eat at one of the listed restaurants- that is ideal for my littles and I when we definitely spend less than 6 hours on the pier.

You should be so incredibly proud of the guide- this is going to help so many tourists, local and afar, truly enjoy the Navy Pier experience. I don't have one drop of constructive criticism to offer- this is simply amazing!" Cheryl Hanson Leahy,
