This is a cute area with lots of shops and restaurants. We rode the big ferris wheel and got a great view of the lake! The cherry on top was the fireworks show. The only con is the crazy traffic, yikes!

Lots of fun for everyone. Giant ferris wheel, crazy swings and climbing walls. You have to be a certain height, weight for climbing wall and have running shoes. Lots of places for lunch and a cooling ale. Highly recommend.

The Pier is a happening place, but not for everyone. Great spot for looking back on the skyline or taking a lakefront tour. Great place for picking up good fast food. Good place to eat if you like Bubba Gumps or Harry Carey's. Carousel for the kids and a Ferris wheel. For us old timers, looking for a good meal...not... More

I think if you've never been to Chicago, you've got to go check out Navy Pier..even if only for an hour or two. There are a couple of carnival rides--we didn't partake in those. We just walked along the Riverwalk..all the way to the end. There are a lot of great outdoor restaurants/bars..you can buy a drink and walk with... More

There are numerous restaurants, eateries, ice cream and coffee shops spread out along the length of the pier. You can find anything from a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich to an organic veggie wrap to a full seafood... More

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.
