A big city might not be your first choice when planning a vacation with your pup, but Chicago has plenty of pet-friendly activities your family will love. From some of the country's most beautiful parks to winding lakefront paths, there's plenty to keep everyone entertained. Navy Pier even allows pets on the boardwalk and in the outdoor cafés! After an afternoon in the sun, your furry friend will be ready for a nap. While your pet sleeps, you can hit the Magnificent Mile for a shopping extravaganza!
