Don’t crack open that piggy bank just yet! Chicago is certainly filled with fun things to do and places to see, but if you want to keep the whole family entertained without spending a fortune, Navy Pier is the place to be. With deals and promotions for all sorts of attractions and free admission every day, the Pier is your best bet for family fun that doesn’t break the bank.
The first step is to print off the Navy Pier VIP Card and present it to the Guest Services Desk to receive a coupon book stuffed with discounts to famous attractions, top-rated restaurants, and awesome shops, all here at Navy Pier! Tip: Be sure to print off one card per person to receive a book for everyone!
Then spend the afternoon gallivanting around Pier Park with the $12 You-Ride-2 Value Ticket or the $49 10-Ride Family Share Pass, good for admission to any of the attractions including the Ferris Wheel, the Wave Swinger, the Links Mini Golf Course, the Light Tower Ride, and the Carousel.
After the park, visit the Chicago Children’s Museum with a special $1 off online coupon. Present it at the admissions desk and get up to $4 off per family! Plus, don’t forget about free and discounted visits at Chicago Children’s Museum on the first Sunday of every month and every Thursday evening!
For free, live entertainment, refreshing beverages, and the best skyline views in the city, stop by the Landshark Beer Garden! This summer’s music schedule is packed with more than 125 bands plus an electronic dance music DJ series on select Fridays, and the bar will once again offer micro-brews, imports, cocktails, and colorful frozen creations.
For a unique dining experience, reserve a spot aboard one of the majestic cruise lines docked here at the Pier. Use promo code NPCRUISES15 to receive a 15% discount on a lunch or dinner cruise on the Odyssey, Spirit, or Mystic Blue, Sunday through Friday.
If you’re a theater-lover under 35, Chicago Shakespeare Theater invites you to enjoy their acclaimed productions at a discounted price through their free CST for $20 program. Plus, all CST patrons receive exclusive dining deals from a select group of restaurants on our near Navy Pier!
Of course, all active duty, reserve, and guard military, as well as military families, are welcomed and encouraged to take advantage of Navy Pier Military Discounts for various dining and entertainment opportunities.
