River North Attractions in Chicago

Just North of the Loop is the Near North Side neighborhood, known for its' fantastic shopping, galleries, restaurants. Begin your shopping experience browsing along the Magnificent Mile, lined with the best shops and department stores. Even more shopping can be found at Water Tower Place, a multi-level shopping center at the north end of the "Mag Mile." If you are traveling with young children, a stop by the famous American Girl Place is a must. They will also have a blast at Navy Pier, which holds the Children's Museum, a Ferris wheel, IMAX Theater, and the Crystal Gardens. If the weather is warm and sunny grab a beach ball and head to Oak Street Beach or Ohio Street Beach, and if time allows take a sight-seeing tour of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan, provided by Wendella Sightseeing Boats. Other highlights are the International Museum of Surgical Science for the science-minded, the spectacular views from the John Hancock Building, and great performances at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
