Navy Pier is a must if you visit Chicago. It's a cool place that has something for everyone. Shopping, great food, children's museum, IMAX Theatre, and free transportation via the Navy Pier Trolley. The ride on the ferris wheel was disappointing - $8.00 per person, and you go around once, and have to get off. Other than that -- great... More

We live in Chicago but went here to see the fireworks. Fireworks are amazing! Prices for everything else is a lot! It was a fun night of rides and dinner but cost a hefty penny. I feel bad for tourists to think this is how everything is priced in Chicago. It is not!

I have been here before, but came back recently to visit with some out-of-towners. It was a beautiful summer day and it was nice to walk, explore, and people watch. It was also very beautiful! The lake looked lovely and it was nice to see the sunset over the city. It can get expensive if you have food and entertainment... More

There are really only 2 rides, swings and ferris wheel and mini golf for older kids, but its a great deal of fun. The ferris wheel has great views of the river and bay. It is cool to ride it during the firework display. There is a lot of shopping and a great variety of resturants.

Crowds were excessively large, making movement difficult. Is everyone in Chicago rude? Seemed like it after we visited here. Prices are high in almost all venues.

Ride the Ferris wheel and enjoy whatever is happening on the pier. We went during a warmer day in winter and the ferris wheel was running!!

Nice to walk round whatever the weather - in the summer to gaze over the lake or in the winter to see the lake frozen.

This is a must see landmark, the views of Chicago from the end of the pier are just beautiful. There is lots going on there, how much money you spend there at the bars, restaurants, shops is up to you but the walking around it is free. There is also a free shuttle that will take you around the pier.... More

If you're looking to do the touristy thing, head to Navy Pier... It's all about restaurants and shopping catered to tourists, and not a single of these places has very good food. The atmosphere is cool, but there are a TON of people at all times... even on a Monday late morning. Great fireworks displays.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
