Chicago's Navy Pier

I have been going to Chicago's Navy Pier for so many years and I have enjoyed the events throughout my life!

Throughout the year they have a lot to choose from especially year round family oriented shows.

They have the IMAX 3-D Theater that is absolutely incredible!

The experience is unforgettable and features films ranging from space travel, nature and roller coasters!

Navy Pier has a Family Pavilion Stage that provides great entertainment for all ages! They have special events throughout the year but even during our very cold days they have a Winter Wonder Fest that is outstanding that offers indoor skating, sledding, rides and a variety of activities!

There is a new Fine Arts Fridges event that artist have created works made completely of recycled refrigerator materials, this may sound unusual and it really is! The "Pier" is open year round so you are sure to find something for everyone!

Parking is readily available for the entire day but I would recommend public transportation that takes you door to door from the train to the pier! I hope you enjoy some quality and fun times there!
