Head to Navy Pier this Monday, July 4 for one of the biggest and best Independence Day parties in America! Chicago’s iconic attraction hosts the grand fireworks show, which starts at 9:30 pm and will light up the skies over Lake Michigan. You’ll find many great places to watch the show, including:
Rooftop Freedom Fest – Located on Navy Pier’s Rooftop Terrace, this party is without a doubt one of the best places to see the fireworks. You’ll also find barbeque, beer, and DJ music.
Ferris Wheel – Take a seven-minute ride on Chicago’s world-class Ferris wheel, and see the city from 150 feet above the ground – a unique vantage point for the fireworks action!
Boat Cruises – Another fun option is to book a sightseeing cruise and see the show from the water. You’ll find 4th of July cruises offered by several companies, including Odyssey Chicago, Mystic Blue, and Shoreline Sightseeing.
Restaurants – Arrive early and grab a window table at dining outlets like Riva Crab House or Bubba Gump’s.
