Husband and I have lived near Chicago most of our lives, and never have walked the lakefront by DuSable Harbor. The last time we walked to Navy Pier (for our anniversary in 2008) was from the Hard Rock Hotel and we walked through city streets. This year we walked from Millenium Park and followed the path from DuSable Harbor on the south side of Navy Pier.

The view on the other side of the bridge. Yes, they spray the tour boats with water.
The Riverwalk…needs a little repair.
We were so pleased with taking this route. It made for such a lovely experience, and the harbor is partly the reason we ended up with 308 photographs of our day in Chicago!
