Millennium Park to Navy Pier Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Just imagine if Daniel Burnham, instead of saying “Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably will not themselves be realized,” had said: “Make little plans, they’ll keep your blood pressure low and come in on budget.” Then Chicago would look like Schaumburg. This walk shows the Burnham ethos in action—for better or worse. From the grand spectacle that is Millennium Park, past Chicago’s largest development, around a reversed river, past what might become the world’s tallest condos, and on to Chicago’s oddest amusement park, Navy Pier, is a walk of extremes, so take no little steps."
