When you live in a place like Chicago, you forget sometimes to look past the spectacular architecture at the natural beauty that surrounds the city. Well, today’s a day for noticing and appreciating Chicago’s parks, beaches, bike trails, and waterways. Happy Earth Day, Chicago!
If you’re looking for ways to celebrate, here are some of our suggestions!
Experience a boat cruise on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River! Just take a look at all the sightseeing and dining cruises that leave from Navy Pier!

Or- how about a bike ride from the Pier? Rent a bike and create your own sightseeing itinerary or, better yet, try out a tour with Bike and Roll Chicago! Explore Chicago’s Northside on the Lincoln Park Bike Adventure Tour, which will take you on the lakefront trail, through beaches and parks, and even to the Lincoln Park Zoo!
