A favorite place to go without any agenda. Restaurants, rides, sightseeing, boat tours, free performances, small shops, easy parking, Navy Pier has it all in one place. For families, the Children's Museum can't be beat, but be prepared for the kids not wanting to leave!

We strolled through here on a recent Saturday afternoon, and it was so crowded we could barely think! Maybe there is a better time with smaller crowds.

Wonderful atmosphere! The breeze and views were very nice. The rides were not much to speak of and the construction was detracting, though temporary. Live music and restaurants were great. Bikes were available to rent, trolleys were accessible.

No big deal with this venue. Ferris Wheel should be twice the size. Other rides are barely worthwhile. No great anchor tenants. I hope the developers will improve this place which has lots of potential if done right.

Lots of eateries and things to do. Didn’t have time to explore all the attractions but the highlight was the fireworks after dinner. Will definitely return.

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

We took the Shoreline Tour for the Architecture tour. On this tour, you cannot get off or on at different locations. You board and depart the boat from the Navy Pier.

We were there in the evening and were mostly inside. I do believe there are benches along the pier. Not sure about bringing refreshments into the hall.
