Navy Pier is a great venue but going there with children is challenging is everything is superexpensive, including the ferris wheel and all of the food --I would recommend packing a lunch and just getting a drink there. The underground shops are beautiful but expensive...More

Nothing exciting here except tourist trap bars, restaurants and shops. Only stop here if you are on a mission to visit every margaritaville and Bubba Gump restaurants across the nation.

The food choices were very limited and the shops were so so. I was expecting better dining and more nice shopping.

Navy pier is worth a visit, whether the weather is good or bad. If it's windy you can walk indoors all the way, but you would miss the spectacular views on Lake Michigan. Inside are many fast food places and souvenirs shops.

We heard so much about this that we had high expectations. We ended up walking through and around a bunch of restaurants (chains, nothing special or local), tourist shops (selling stock Chicago stuff, nothing unique), fast food joints, and various tours. There was nothing particularly...More

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

We took the Shoreline Tour for the Architecture tour. On this tour, you cannot get off or on at different locations. You board and depart the boat from the Navy Pier.

We were there in the evening and were mostly inside. I do believe there are benches along the pier. Not sure about bringing refreshments into the hall.
