Navy Pier

600 E. Grand Ave., Chicago, IL 60611


The pride of Chicago's lakefront, Navy Pier is filled with entertainment, food, and cultural attractions for the whole family.

Centrally located on Chicago's beautiful lakefront with thousands of hotel rooms nearby, Navy Pier is a civic landmark and one of the top-visited leisure and cultural destinations in the world. Its mission is to serve as a world-class public place in the vein of famed architect Daniel Burnham's vision for the Chicago lakefront—as an attractive and useful public space where the people of the city (and from all over) could gather to play, interact, and foster community.

Open year-round, Navy Pier offers entertainment, food, and cultural attractions for the whole family.
