Always a fun experience here. Very nice chill environment and a great tourist attraction. Navy Pier has a little bit of everything for everyone. I have gone here to eat, have drinks, take my children to build a bear, party on a boat and also have my oldest ride the merry go round. Although I am to chicken to get on the Ferris wheel, I am absolutely sure it serves a beautiful view of the cities downtown area and the lake as well.
A Must See! Great for tourist to explore and walk around. Lots of ships and restaurants. I went in March when it was very cold so it was pretty much empty. But I'm sure it get crowded in the summer. You get a very good view of the city's skyline from here.
I'm sure it's super crowded in the summer, but we were there in March and it was a ghost town. I loved it. A great place to check out the city skyline. We walked the entire length of the pier and it was nice.
Long. That's right, it's a long pier, not the one from, "...take a long walk off a short pier...". You can enter (inside) from the children's museum, and pretty much stay inside the whole length. Particularly good during cold weather. Lots of places to eat - low end to high end. Tourist trap-ey little shops and boutiques. A nice place to visit.
Handy place to look at the lake and grab a bite to eat. Beautiful views of the frozen lake at this time of year and very empty. I understand this isn’t the case in the summer. You get some nice views of the Chicago skyline here too. Best of all is the walk around it and views of Chicago from both sides of the pier.
