Always a lot going on from flowers to trendy eateries at varying prices. Bring comfy shoes and walk to the end. Everything from romantic couples to rug rats that will make them think of contraception.

Can't really think of anything redeeming about Navy Pier...overpriced everything, below average food offerings, it's Chicago's tourist trap...there is a Bubba Gumps there...so that tells you all you need to know. Panama City Beach, Daytona Beach, Navy Pier...all the same, do not waste your time there.

The water and view of Chicago are spectacular at the Navy Pier! This was our first tourist sight in Chicago, and it set the perfect tone and a beautiful Friday night! There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and places to just walk and look. No Chicago visit would be complete without this stop!

Navy Pier counts with a lot of shopping, restaurants, and activities for the family. There's a garden with fountains on the second floor. Also, outside they have some carnival games and the famous fairest wheel. You will see great views from the fairest wheel.

We were fortunate that we landed upon unusually warm February weather when visiting Navy Pier. Beautiful to just sit back and relax, take it all in. Cute little shops, restaurants and friendly staff.

My wife and I, stayed all day and didn't get bored. There was alot of security, so no problem there. Prices was fair and most vendors worked with us on prices. I did purchase my ancestors coat of arms and family history from a vendor there. After we was finished, we negotiated a price with a limo ride around town... More

This place was awesom and would be good for anyone of any age. Plenty of shopping and places to eat. Best part was the Ferris Wheel which was reasonably priced and had great views.

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.
