Navy Pier has become a destination in itself, with it’s
restaurants, shops, and 150 foot high Ferris Wheel. It has performance stages, a Shakespeare
Theatre, an exhibition hall that houses art exhibits and seasonal events like
the spring Flower Show and the Winter Wonderfest. You can book a dinner cruise or a boat tour, watch
a fireworks display during the summer months, or if you’re lucky, catch the
Tall Ships when they sail into town. The
Chicago Children’s Museum is located on the pier and there is even a permanent,
free display of 150 stained glass windows (The Smith Museum) on the main level - all by prominent designers and almost all were originally housed in Chicago buildings. Truly something for everyone!
