From recreation to relaxation & entertainment to education, Navy Pier offers activities & experiences for all.
Imagine this: It’s a beautiful, sunny, not-too-hot summer day in Chicago. You’re taking a walk and enjoying the cool breeze off of Lake Michigan with a cold drink in your hand. Doesn’t the skyline look beautiful?
If this sounds like a dream you can get behind, then why aren’t you at Navy Pier right now? The Pier offers a stretch of walkway that’s perfect for strolling and taking in the sights. The bonus benefit of walking the whole way to the East End Plaza with your drink of choice in hand and being able to grab refills along the way makes this one relaxing way to spend the afternoon.
That’s right, Navy Pier allows open containers on its property and with so many places to stop for a beverage, you can turn an afternoon into your own personal pub crawl!
If you’re concerned about crowds, Navy Pier has so many locations to spread out that you can take your beverage and move to another spot at any time. Grab some friends and end your day downtown with your own personal pub crawl. Wander to the end and experience a more secluded and peaceful place to take in the city. There’s so much to discover, take a stroll to the end of Navy Pier and find out what you’ve been missing this whole time!
