    Nice views, fun at night especially. Not much going on during the day.

    Navy Pier is fun, especially for families. Everyone can fan out to shop in the mall, play minigolf in Pier Park in summer, see a movie at the IMAX Theatre, or explore the Chicago Children's Museum. Read more

    Beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Fun shops to check out. A bit touristy, but worth a trip if you're visiting Chicago.

    This is very tourist-y. The 4th of July fireworks is one of very few reasons to visit. Still, it is a wonder to enjoy on less-busy days.

    Wednesday's nights in summer usually have a fireworks show.

    I hadn't been to Navy Pier in so long. The view (skyline) was so beautiful and there was so much diversity. It's a must go again. However, parking was a little steep ($25) lol.

  • Jared B.

    Many touristy attractions that I wouldn't go to, but a ride on the Ferris wheel is worth going.

    The current Ferris wheel will be dismantled in the fall of 2015 to make way for a new Eye of London style Ferris wheel in spring 2016.

    Located right on Lake Michigan, Navy Pier not only provides visitors with stunning lakefront and skyline views, but it also has a number of free activities offered year-round.

    Not much to do here. There's nothing to draw people back again, just a tourist trap. Can't want to see the remodel.

    Awesome Place normally--except they're doing tons of construction. Scenic View, Touristy Stuff, Small Amusement Park.
