I'm not sure why this place has received so many compliments because I found it rather dull. It is basically a long, long pier, littered with limited stalls and a handful of eateries. There really didn't seem to be any character whatsoever. There are many wonderful places in Chicago and this isn't one of them. I'm not sure whether this place was set up as some sort of tourist trap, but it seemed to promise a lot, and deliver so little.
