Recent restoration of Navy Pier has given Chicago a new open planned continuous walkway that projects right out into Lake Michigan. You can go to the Navy Pier for dinner, movies, Shakespeare, special exhibits and to meet a charter boat for special dinner/boat tour events. I have recently been there for a special catered event in the ballroom located at... More

We visited Shedds aquarium then on to Navy Pier. We enjoyed the boardwalk, a boat ride then a little shopping and eating. There's something for everyone here. This is like a half way point to other museums and attractions.

I wasn't expecting much from Navy Pier in the Winter but there were many restaurants and bars open. There were also a few specialty shops and, while we were there, a Winterfest for kids that was definitely worth the visit!

Since our time was somewhat limited during this brief visit, not to mention the near zero temps, we stayed fairly close to our hotel, which was less than one mile from Navy Pier. An exciting shopping and dining location

We were there last week to see King Charles III at the Shakespeare theatre at Navy Pier. The production was first rate as usual. Navy Pier had been renovated recently and it is the top tourist attraction in Chicago. In the summertime, there is a giant ferris wheel where kids can have a good time. There are fireworks every Wednesday... More

Navy pier was a fun experience. We walk the shops and grabbed some Garrett popcorn super yum!!! And the view was just beautiful. They were hosting a wedding when we were visiting and it was so fun to watch the group gather for this memorable event. I would recommend visiting Navy Pier and grab a bite to eat. They have...

Was in town for few hours. It was cloudy and bit of rain. Navy pier is the perfect place to spend couple of hours with Ferris wheel, crystal garden, Chicago pizza and Driehaus gallery of stained glass.

I was travelling with friends and decided to stop here. We had a lot of fun with the Ferris wheel. It also had putt-putt golfing and cute little restaurants.

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.
