Chicago >Festival Hall At Navy Pier
“The boat tours are great -- we like the Duck cruises (more casual and fun than the others).”
“We can go there for a good dinner and then walk down to the end to listen to a band play and enjoy a few drinks.”
“Navy pier is really a nice place to see the lake, eat some great food (specially the hot dogs) and to do some touristy shopping.”
“It's great for a stroll, but the shops and dining options aren't all that impressive.”
“navy pier's beer garden is a great place to relax and hang out with friends!”
“Its a good place to go and just walk around -- you see alot of new people.”
“It's like a huge party all year long.”
“They have an onsite Children's Museum as well as a small miniature gold course, a very large slow moving ferris wheel offering great views of the surrounding area, and other games.”
See it at least once. You'd make yourself crazy if you habitually came to this crowded tourist attraction, but it's a fun place to bring people who have never before been to Chicago. There are arcade games and 3-D rides for kids and the ferris wheel worth checking out for the view. The free fireworks shows on Wednesdays and Saturdays during the summer are icing on the cake.
Cuddling in Chicago on the wheel. My boyfriend and I just went to Chicago and did the ferris wheel at Navy Pier at night. It was kind of hard to see because the windows were foggy but it was a pretty view when you look out over the door of the car. It is a good place to cuddle and have a romantic kiss.
Touristy. But I still enjoyed the entire strip of store and restaurants. For extra fun get a boat ride. There are also two local dining cruise ships. Take the Ferris wheel ride.
Enjoyment, culture, variety you will fin. We had hours and hours of fun here. There is always something to see or do here. This place is great for tourist type picture taking. It is full of scenic stop points. Adults and children alike can enjoy themselves here. It's a must see place to be.
The Best Romantic Spot. Slow moving carriage with a beautiful view of the city and lake. This is the best place to share a romantic moment. Snuggle up to your partner, and enjoy the ride.
For out-of-town friends.... It's tourist-central here, with plenty of fast food and souvenirs. Highlights include the boat cruises and the merry-go-round. The Ferris wheel is too high for me, though my 4-year-old son loves it. Parking is available, but the rates are fairly ridiculous. Coming down here once a year or so is plenty.
Screaming kids and tourists. I gotta tell you, I avoid this place like the plague. Too many cheesy trinket stores, candy shops, and a whole lot of other junk that only non-Chicagoans get into. The ferris wheel's worth a whirl, but aside from that, there's not much to recommend this place.
