It’s hard to imagine that the Navy Pier was once considered a blemish to the Chicago shoreline.
However, thanks to massive investing and reconstructing, it is now a marvel of entertainment and attractions for Chicagoans and travelers alike. Take in the sight atop the 150 foot Ferris wheel or an edge of your seat movie at the IMAX Theater. If you are looking to enjoy great music, the Pier offers every imaginable musical concert at the Skyline Stage. Nature also blooms year round at the Navy Pier with an indoor botanical garden that is sure to capture any visitor’s attention. So whether you are looking for a place to take the family or even a date night, the Navy Pier is sure to please.
