I was there to visit. There was alot to do. Places Rio eat and drink. The view was amazing... just the overall ambiance took over me. Family oriented but enough for adults to do. Others having fun on the water. One of the best attractions if you ever find yourself in Chicago.

Navy Pier was really nice! We visited for a cheer competition. Plan ahead for parking because they charge $30! There are other lots downtown with parking for various cheaper prices, but if you have small children it's not worth the long walk to the pier. You should wear comfortable shoes because the place is big. Also bring a jacket and umbrella/rain coat. It's cool/cold outside on the pier and because it's windy the water blows on you as if it were raining. There is all kind of food for purchase (McDonald's, Garrett's Popcorn, etc.) and even a Build a Bear Workshop here! Enjoy!

Clean and well kept facilities. Nice splash pad for the kids. The garden is also a nice place to relax. Other than that it's pretty much a tourist trap. We could get a nice sit down lunch for what they wanted for a ride on the ferris wheel. The remote control boats don't work very well. Overall, nice for walking around but not much else.

Loved Navy Pier! So family friendly, especially with the great artwork everywhere (sculptures) and the library. Ferris wheel, the swing thing, the beutiful green house, the river and lots of restaurants to choose from. Open til midnight, which was wonderful for our group. Loved the hot dogs and my favorite was the Pop shop place that sold ice cream bars. Delicious! Loved it!

Very cool place! This is the only place that I've been to that I could take my drinks to go and walk around the pier with them. We got to experience the fireworks here at night which were very cool to see! They also have other various events that go on there on other days but unfortunately we were only there for one day. Will definitely come back if we're ever back in town!
