Standard restaurants and shops aimed at tourists. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but just know that's what you're in for. The best part is walking along the pier on a sunny day -- great views of the city and lake. All-in-all a fun afternoon...More

We went to the Navy Pier on a recommendation but honestly I think the Pier is for parents with children. There are lots of places to eat suitable for children and there are amusement rides including the new ferris wheel. We walked to the end...More

The pier is nothing too amazing. It's a good place to go on building tours and maybe on the Ferris wheel and that's about it. Or if you have kids they have a children museum there. Nevertheless, it's still a famous attraction in Chicago.

This is a great area to roam around.there are restaurants, bars, games,rides and all sorts of boat rides to purchase for tours of the river and lake. Could easily spend lots of time, and money, here. The views are great!

Navy Pier is a cute little tourist trap complete with water view, restaurants, bars, and amusement rides. The three rotations on the Ferris wheel allowed a realLy pretty view of the Chicago skyline. One could also ride swings, a rock wall, or a small drop-ride...More

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

I'd ring to check, but as far as I could see you could walk up there any time to look out over the lake. It would be nice at dawn. I was there for sunset and it was lovely. The restaurants and concessions are nothing special... More
