Day trip in Chicago

We are coming this Saturday for the day, we are driving in and going to park all day in downtown. Been to Chicago many times usually for girls shopping trip or hockey tournament on limited time but bringing our boys, 12 and 14 just to see the city. We will do the usualy Michigan Ave, spending lots of time at Nike and Apple. I want to go see the "bean" and go up in Hancock Observatory. Also want deep dish pizza within walking distance to Michigan Ave. Also never been on a watertaxi, can you take that to Navy Pier?? So all you experts hook me up with some good info!!

Thanks, but more specifically can you take a water taxi from Michigan Ave to Navy Pier?

Also been to all of the Chicago Pizza places, but is there one within walking distance to Michigan Ave?

Thanks!!

Take those boys to the Willis/Sears Tower Skydeck instead of the Hancock for the ledge experience- theskydeck.com/the-tower/facts-about-the-led… Then take the water taxi from there to Navy Pier.
