There’s plenty to see and do in the Chicago Business District. Take a water taxi to Navy Pier or hover 1,350 feet above the city on the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower Skydeck. Other nearby attractions include the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Art Institute of Chicago. A quick cab ride gets you to the Theatre District where you can enjoy one of many live productions. Retail shops, restaurants and numerous hotels also flank the Illini Center. Easy access is available to commuter train stations, bus stations and major expressways.
