Fun, food, entertainment, music, amusments, shopping and more. At the edge of downtown this is a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike. When you think you have done it all, there's more. Allow several hours up to an entire day.

Many restaurants, rides for the kids, the Ferris wheel, and great views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago Skyline.

Nice attraction for families with children as it has the children's museum and many place to get a bite to eat. There were also some sports bars that looked OK. If going there opt for the free Navy Pier Trolley that loops around the main tourist areas in the vicinity.

I do not know if that’s because we went there during end of winter season, but there is nothing to do there especially if you don’t have children (because the pier is hosting the Children’s museum).
Even though you have restaurants, there is nothing else to do, even the attractions were not opened.

If you want a great view of the city, go to the beach or the lincoln park, way better!
