Busy but worth it

We started our trip to Navy Pier by arriving via water taxi from the Shedd Aquarium. Liked the variety of shops and the Ferris Wheel offers great views of the city.

If you like crowded places with very overpriced food and beverages, this is the place for you. It is a pretty locale right - I guess - 'in' the water but there are just too many people for my tastes. We had our two teenage granddaughters with us so did eat there but it wasn't that great and was extremely... More

If you can't find something here...you are lost. Chicago is filled with wonderful things, this is just one. Crowds can be tough as can parking, but park downtown and take public transportation. Well worth the trip.

I could have done without visiting here. A lot of construction. Mostly shops, bars and food places. I'm sure it's better during the season with bands and entertainment. Could have been better at night, but we went during the day as a stop on a water taxi.

This was our first visit to Chicago and there was so much to see. It is on the banks of Lake Michigan. There are beautiful views to be enjoyed especially the Chicago skyline. We rode the Ferris Wheel which offers great panoramic views. We went for a fast motor boat ride on the Sea Dog. It was great fun but... More

I only give it a 3 star (star? or button?) rating because it has Garrett's Popcorn in it. It's also where the SeaDog tours take off. It's nice, I guess, but super commercial and touristy. It's basically a mall with lots of crap.

This is a major destination for locals and tourists alike. It is completely packed with people. There is an amusement area with a ferris wheel and miniature gold which we participated in. Lots of fun. There is an indoor mall with lots of places to eat. The view is spectacular. If you have the time, get a ticket to one... More

Unless you have children this is a waste of time. Nothing there but food and carnival. Wish we wouldn't have wasted a taxi ride to get there and out of there.

Nice views and lots of places to stop and shop. Very crowded and many places closed or blocked off due to construction.

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.
