From Interstate 94 in Chicago, take exit 50B and proceed east to Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. There is parking on Navy Pier and fairly good views of the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse can be had from the end of the pier. Shoreline Sightseeing offers harbor and skyline tours that depart form Navy Pier, affording good views of the lighthouse.
