Pepsi Skyline Stage At Navy Pier

When Navy PIer first opened in 1916, it was the largest pier in the world - though it was used for commercial shipping purposes and even served as a training ground for Navy sailors and pilots during WWII, it was always designed as a mixed-use public space. Today, Navy PIer is certainly mixed-use, if you count eating, drinking and meandering as mixed-use. Sightseeing cruises are a more ubiquitous sight than lake freighters, and the old cargo warehouses now house restaurants, concert stages, exhibition halls, shopping kiosks and public art installations. There's even a ferris wheel and an IMAX theatre here, but the Disney-fication of Navy Pier is far over - there are plans for everything from floating hotel to a water park.

Navy Pier is always full of tourists, making the parking, food and pretty much everything else expensive. The views of the Chicago skyline are pretty, but you can get views just as nice, but in a much quieter atmosphere, at the Museum Campus.

  • Das Navy Pier wird zur Zeit leider modernisiert, daher ist vieles nur Baustelle...Schade, aber der Blick draussen ist großartig.

  • You need to look beyond the fast food kiosks and emporiums. Look at one of the best children's museums in the country, an outstanding Shakespearean theater, an incredible IMAX, argueably the finest Chicago seafood restaurant-Riva, go on a skyline evening dinner cruise on the lake. This is an awesome facility with something for everyone.

  • navy pier is incredibly touristy. the views of the city are pretty good, but you can also get better views from the Museum Campus. personally, I would skip it, unless you are purposefully looking to be surrounded by a gazillion out-of-towners.

  • Cheesy place, at the end of November a bit boring. Seems like a nice place for a hot summer day though!
