On entry, there are stores and restaurants on either side. Guest relations and maps are straight ahead.
Walking past the shops you will reach the stairs to the upper level.
Turn around at the top of the stair for a bird's eye view of the retail court and The Children's Museum.
Now we will step through the entrance to enjoy the beautiful botanical Crystal Gardens and its water features.
Walk to the rear doorway to reach the Centennial Wheel, Pepsi Wave Swing, Drop Tower, Tea Cups, Carousel, and other amusement rides.
To your right are sweeping views of Lake Michigan and south docks. The outdoor Staircase is a popular place to watch a free fireworks show.
Continue walking east for the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre & The Yard where classical plays and productions are held.
Start from staircase (before entering Crystal Gardens), walk through lower level to the food court. I highly recommend a classic Chicago hotdog or...
Continue walking on lower level to find The Funhouse Maze. Stop at Billy Goats Tavern for a classic Cheezborger Cheezborger Cheezborger!!
From here you can step outside to enjoy the water views.
At the end of the pier is The Grand Ballroom (open for special events only).
When you reach the end of the pier, you'll see a beautiful view of the Chicago skyline across the water.
Did you know there is a hotel for overnight stays at Navy Pier?
You'll also find lots of free outdoor entertainment. The Navy Pier Beer Garden on the east end of the pier.
