If you don't want to stray far from the neighborhood, they highlighted to spots within the Sloop:
#14: Shedd Aquarium/Field Museum
The grassy slopes surrounding Shedd and the Lakefront Trail roundabout are both solid spots for fireworks gazing. It's an intimate refuge from the craziness at Navy Pier, but still close enough to get a great view.
#15: Adler Planetarium
Located near the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Planetarium also has some grassy knolls and plenty of concrete breakwall to hang out at on Monday evening. The Adler is located at the very edge of the Museum Campus and offers unobstructed views of the lake and the greater downtown area.
We're big fans of the lawn in front of the Field Museum.
Regardless of if/where you watch the fireworks - hope you have a nice 4th of July!
