  Trolley from the back
by londonlover

There is a free trolley that operates in Chicago from Memorial Day through Labor day, and during the winter holiday season, (except on the holidays themselves). You can take the trolley from just outside Marshall Fields on State Street (there's a sign for the waiting area) to Navy Pier or to Michigan Avenue. You can also pick it up at either train station (Union Station or Oglevie), so it's great for saving you a long walk to the typical tourist attractions. Maps are available inside the trolleys for their routes, and signs by the trolley stops show where each of the three routes stops.

Beware of the lines, though--you can wait quite a few minutes for a trolley that isn't full on busy shopping days.
