Navy Pier Chicago
The Most Popular Destination in the City of Chicago!
Beautifully located on Lake Michigan and decorated with restaurants, parks, attractions, boats & yachts, shops, conventions & trade show halls and more, Navy Pier is an admirable landmark and a Must See!!!
Originally built as a shipping facilty and used for military training during the two world wars, Navy Pier eventually transferred ownership to the Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority and became the entertainment destination it is today.
Be sure to experience one of the many boat tours on Dock St. from fun filled speed and excitement at Seadog Cruises or Chicago Sightseeing with Shoreline or a dinner cruise aboard Odyssey, Mystic Blue or Spirit. All of these nautical adventures offer up views of the spectacular skyline and fireworks during the summer from Memorial Day - Labor Day Weekend. Visit www.SkylineBoatTours.com for additional information on the various Chicago boating options.
Inside Navy Pier you'll find live performers, attractions such as Time Escape and Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze along with educational experiences for kids at the Chicago Children's Museum. If you enjoy art you must visit the beautiful halls full with stain glass windows. Don't forget to stop by the food court for an array of dining delights or sit down at Hag N Daz for an ice cream.
Recent press would have us believe that an exciting Multi-Million Dollar Renovation is coming in the near future! It appears to be an absolutely AWESOME change that will include a floating hotel, additional parks, new spokeless Ferris Wheel, monorail and more! Check the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times newspapers for additional information.
