Disclosure: I received a free fireworks cruise in exchange for writing this post. All opinions expressed, however, are my own based on my personal experience.
Back in June, you may remember my post regarding Seadog Cruises. Well just a few weeks ago, I was able to attend the Seadog Fireworks Cruise in Chicago. I attended the cruise with my great friends Melissa of Bargain Shopper Mom and Elizabeth from Yes/No Films, Sarah of thankyouhoney.com and the fabulous ladies of Madame Deals.
Even though I attended with girlfriends, all I kept thinking about was how much my kids would love the cruise! First off, the Navy Pier in Chicago is fun for the whole family. You and your kids can eat at one of the great restaurants on the pier, enjoy sweets and treats from the many vendors, go for a ride on the beautiful ferris wheel while enjoying the city skyline and walk through the beautiful Crystal Gardens. All of these fun things to do are available to you and your family and are especially fun during the Sumer months. Based on my experience, if you visit the Navy Pier, you must take the kids on a fireworks cruise with Seadog.
The ride was pleasant and fun, the staff was personable and friendly and the fireworks show was spectacular from the water! I plan to take my children there the next time I visit Chicago. Being from Michigan, we visit quite a bit (only a 5 hour drive) yet have never taken the kids on a Seadog cruise. The Lakefront Fireworks Cruise, put on by Seadog Cruises are just 30 minute cruises along the shoreline and they can be pretty exciting for the kids. If you are interested in going here’s a list of tours Seadog offers from the water:
