i love walking downtown chicago and seeing the architecture light up the skyline. Along the water it is so peaceful and during the weekdays especially nice. Many beaches, and contrasting greenway sets a beautiful scene.

We wanted to go to the Museum of the Sciences, so we decided to go cycling with the Divvy bikes. If you pay 15 dollars, you can use as many times the bikes during 24 hours, but never longer than 3 hours at a time....More

I was in Chicago for business and needed to relax, what a great place to walk and see some of the city. I was impressed with how clean and safe it was. Definitely will do this again on my next trip.

There is a bike rental concession located in Millenium Park right off of Randolph. It is about a block from the lakefront path. There are numerous places to rent the Divvy bikes, but they do not include helmets.
