Ask For: Navy Pier views.

The Windy City used to have just one big show—over Grant Park—but the Navy Pier show is now stealing some pyrotechnic thunder. A great spot to see it: the Trump Chicago Hotel, which sits on the river and so has a straight shot down to the pier. Its 16th-floor restaurant, The Terrace at Trump, guarantees you center-stage seats—but, since it doesn’t take reservations, early-bird patriots will get the best perch.

Bonus Views: Making the most of the festive summer crowds, the Navy Pier amusement park will also light up the sky every Wednesday and Saturday from July 4th through Labor Day.
