    great place to visit when it's warm out. It's even cooler at night when the fountain lights up.

    The hourly water show is nothing more than an extra high jet of water. The fountain however is really pretty. No need to wait for the show!

    The Navy Pier fireworks are synched with music, so if you want to get close enough to hear, watch from the pier. You can also catch great views of the sky by heading south to Buckingham Fountain.

    Supposedly at night there is a light show, but wouldn't know since it does not operate during the winter. Beautiful regardless.

    After a run or a bike ride in the summer, stand near the fountain for a refreshing mist of cool water

    From April through mid-October, it produces a 20-minute water show every hour, with the center jet shooting 150 feet (45.7 m) high. Designed by Edward H. Bennett, it was dedicated in 1927.
