A Chicago must see.

The walk along the pier is both exciting and fun! It is one of the more famous attractions in Chicago and must be experienced.

Considered the #1 spot for a good reason. IMAX, Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, the Ferris Wheel (soon to be a new, larger one), miniature golf, rides, attractions, shops, restaurants, boats, INCREDIBLE VIEWS. If I didn't already live here, I'd come just to visit this wonderful place! Can it be costly, sure. But a splurge every now and then is worth it.... More

I would love to come back here in the summer, it was very cold and windy when we were here but the view back on the sky line from the end is breathtaking and the view out on the water is great as well. The gardens were closed, the shops limited and again, I would like to go back in... More

Navy Pier has so much to offer. It is better in the summer, but I still had a great time there. I sat on the benches at the end and stared out over Lake Michigan. There are great shops and restaurants.

Great place to explore. Check out the shops, the Ferris wheel, parks, gardens, shops, restaurants, family attractions including the children's museum and a theater. Also the place to start your dinner cruise. We have done many of these over the years when visiting, but often we just come and walk around and sample some food.

Fireworks on the pier at night were really nice. It was a last minute decision, but they were bigger then expected. There were several places to eat and the museum shop was entertaining as well.

I have had the opportunity to attend trade shows at the Navy Pier in Chicago. The location is convenient and the size is not overwhelming like some of the venues in other cities. Step outside and enjoy the view of Lake Michigan

On a pleasant afternoon, this is a great place to take a stroll and look around. There is a lot to entertain you and places to sit while watching people. This location has a lot of history attached to it as well. There are many things to do on the Navy Pier and a great place to view Chicago.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
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.
