Tall Ships Chicago - Traveling from Wilmette

If you are going to downtown Chicago to see the Tall Ships (which are at Navy Pier through August 9, 2006) do not take the Metra to get there. I did that yesterday and it was a very, very bad idea. While the free trolley stops near the station, the crowds will likely encourage you to hop on a CTA bus. Never again. Not only was the route designed to go through maximum traffic, the bus just sits and waits (for 15 minutes it waited) until there are enough passengers. The return seemed even slower, although I don't think it was.

Take the el from Linden. You will thank me for the tip.

Parade of sail is until 1:00 pm today, but I'm not sure I have the strength.
