At Navy Pier there’s a carnival atmosphere and boats to get you out on Lake Michigan for a view of Chicago’s skyline at its best. Shop on the wide boulevard of the Magnificent Mile, find everything from wild animals to gangsters at the zoo and museum of Lincoln Park, and wander past the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway and the house of Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park. However you decide to spend your time in Chicago, book one of our local Chicago photographers and experience not just the American Midwest, but America the beautiful.
