Lakefront Water Rentals

Nothing says summertime in Chicago like a day on the lakefront. Rent motorized boats, kayaks, jet skis, and even windsurfing gear at one of Chicago’s many beaches, like North Avenue beach.

If you’d rather just sit back and enjoy the water rather than playing captain for a day, enjoy one of many chartered or guided boat tours. Switch up the typical architectural river boat tour with a lakefront speedboat tour with Seadog.

Navy Pier

Although you can catch fireworks at Navy Pier on Wednesdays and Saturdays, this week will also feature a special Memorial Day firework display. Enjoy them from the pier, atop the iconic Ferris wheel, or from one of many local Streeterville rooftops.
