Touristy but fun

We had a good time here - rode the Ferris wheel at night and saw the city all lit up. There are eateries and a greenhouse and a carousel.

The view of the city is beautiful from Navy Pier. That's where it ends. All the restaurants, shops, rides etc. here are extremely overpriced and designed to extract as much $$ from tourists as possible.

Went on a warm weekend in February. We didn't partake in any of the attractions but noted that there was a long line for the giant ferris wheel. A few of the boat tours were also running and looked quite full. They had few picnic benches at edge of the water where we sat down, had a few snacks and... More

Weekends in the summer can be very crowded. There are a few fun activities and the I-MAX theater, and several restaurants. While the food is average, the prices are not very expensive (considering this is Chicago).

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
