Brown Sugar Bakery is at the very end of the food court area on Navy Pier. We stumbled upon it as we were getting through the crowd to a quieter area to wait for fireworks. Her caramel cupcakes (her signature flavor) are so unbelievable. I...More

We went on the Ferris wheel. Honestly how they didn't theme this with Matthew Broderick is beyond me. Good ride. Good views. Worth getting there if you've never been. If you've got older kids time it with the fireworks show and you'll have covered it...More

This pier offers a nice view of the city shoreline. The shops are nothing to write home about. Lots of fast food options. The fireworks were great.

See the city from the giant wheel. It's a great time and a beautiful pier. Good place to go with friends.

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
