Streeterville is perhaps best known for its extremely easy access to beautiful Lake Michigan and all of the biking and running trails that grace its shores. Also, not to be forgotten, are the beautiful beaches that in the summer are graced with locals and tourists alike to bring a great vibe to the lake front.
Perhaps Streeterville’s most famous attraction comes in the form of Navy Pier. This play land is filled with several amusement rides, gift shops, pubs, eateries, and huge convention halls. The Pier shoots off fireworks every Wednesday and Saturday night and is home to Chicago’s famous July 4th fireworks. Also, available on the Pier, are an assortment of sightseeing boat, Segway, and bike tours for people to learn about this great city.
The Pier isn’t all Streeterville has to offer, as the neighborhood is littered with several dining options from famous pizzerias, pub fare, high end steakhouses, and modern Asian fare. Also, shopping is easy with the Magnificent Mile bordering the neighborhood to the West with several luxury shops and the Water Tower shopping center giving plenty of options to the most avid shopper. Nightlife is sprinkled throughout the neighborhood with a very large movie theater, Lucky Strike bowling alley, and several pubs dotting the neighborhood.
