We have been having gorgeous weather in Chicago recently. (Touch wood!) With an outdoorsy preschooler and travel- inclined family, it was no wonder that we set of to explore downtown Chicago- on foot. 

The gorgeous miles of walkways and boardwalk along Navy pier means picturesque pathways, majestic views, and fun way for mild exercise.  For the more enthusiastic athletes, here is an article from MyFitnessPal that will be of interest.

Given below are photos of our fabulous walking adventure:
