The most exciting attraction in Chicago, Navy Pier is a waterfront playground on Lake Michigan. This lakeside entertainment landmark features unique attractions, parks, promenades, gardens, museums, art exhibits, shops, restaurants, rides and exciting events. Experience a true Chicago tradition at Navy Pier, where families and friends come together for fun in Windy City.
Head over to Pier Park and enjoy panoramic views of Lake Michigan on the 150-foot-high Ferris wheel. Ride the musical carousel, or Wave Swinger, an old-fashioned swing ride, and play 18 holes on the mini golf course. For sightseeing and architecture cruises, hop on the Tall Ship Windy – a 148-foot schooner – take a speedboat adventure on the Seadog, or indulge in a fabulous dinner cruise on Spirit of Chicago.
When you crave culture and cuisine, Navy Pier is an oasis of good. Grab lunch at waterfront restaurants, like Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. or Margaritaville Bar & Grill or swing by the food court in the Family Pavilion, where you can shop for cool stuff – souvenirs to sunglasses. Treat the kids to the Chicago Children’s Museum and Crystal Gardens, a stunning botanical park, see a 3D movie at the IMAX Theatre, enjoy a show at Chicago Shakespeare Theater and explore BigArt, an eclectic outdoor art installation.
From live music to fireworks, Navy Pier is an entertainment dynamo with hundreds of year-round concerts, bands, dance performances and special events on its stages. Don’t miss the amazing Cirque Shanghai acrobats at the Pepsi® Skyline Stage.
