Navy Pier Tours

Chicago's most-visited tourist attraction, Navy Pier will certainly blow the minds of children younger than twelve. The pier's Chicago Children's Museum, plus a collection of high-tech rides, hands-on fountains, kid-focused educational exhibits, fast-food restaurants, and trinket vendors will transport your child into the kind of overstimulated, joyful state you haven't witnessed since you finally gave in and got them a puppy for their birthday last year.

For the adults, Navy Pier's charms revolve around the lakefront views, cool breezes, and a ride on the gigantic Ferris wheel. The carousel is another classic, with bobbing carved horses and organ music. You can also hop on afternoon or evening boat cruises from here.

Navy Pier isn't all about rides and cotton candy, though. The pier hosts a variety of acts throughout the summer at the Skyline Stage, a 1,500 seat rooftop venue with a glistening white canopy. An IMAX Theater and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater also call the Pier home.

Practical Info

Located east of the Michigan Avenue’s “Magnificent Mile,” Navy Pier is easy to get to by bus and El trains; if you take the latter, you can hop on a free pier trolley bus. In summer Shoreline Sightseeing runs a handy water taxi between Navy Pier, the Sears Tower, and the John G. Shedd Aquarium. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the pier puts on a whopping fireworks show.
