Chicago Harbor Lighthouse

Chicago, IL, United States
37 Kudos
When I think about lighthouses, Chicago is not the first place that comes to mind. I had been to Chicago several times before I realized that there was one located here. On my last trip to the city, I took my wife to Navy Pier for her first time and we spotted the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse in the distance. The Chicago Harbor Lighthouse has been standing in this location for 100 years and was built well before then. The lighthouse is now automated and, unfortunately, no visitors are allowed. Do not let the picture fool you, this was anything but a calm scene. Per usual, Navy Pier was swarming with tourists.
