This place is great! Very fun! It is beautiful even at night and in the winter. It is along Lake Michigan so the sight is gorgeous. I went on the ferry at night and it was magically. Very romantic!

Went in March 2015 and there is a lot of development work being done, while I am sure it will be great once done, there is nothing to see/ do at this time (probably to do with being an off season too) but would recommend giving a miss for now.

If you're in Chicago, don't miss spending at least half a day at Navy Pier. So much to do and see: from the restaurants, to the IMAX theater, to a trip aboard the Odyssey or one of the other sightseeing boats, to the Crystal Gardens (kids of ALL ages love watching the magical water spouting), to their special events (the...

Being one of the top attractions in Chicago, it's no secret that Navy Pier is a popular stop for tourists, but I recommend it for locals too. On a nice day, what could be better than a walk out on a pier? If the water and skyline aren't enough, there are plenty of other distractions on the pier. And while... More

I have been here on several occasions with my family for both cheer and dance competitions. It is a beautiful venue! I have even seen people having their wedding reception here. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and some have outdoor dining, so you can enjoy the wonderful view of the pier. There are several shopping outlets, and... More

We spent a few hours on a Saturday afternoon at Navy Pier. With the recent renovations - and ongoing construction - the place is wonderful to wander through shops, grab a bite to eat and something to drink, and to people watch. Lots of fun.

A lot of construction going on there now, so walking is difficult. It's a good place to spend few hours for exercise, then eating junk food, and people watching.
