This pier offers a nice view of the city shoreline. The shops are nothing to write home about. Lots of fast food options. The fireworks were great.

Everything is overpriced here. We paid almost $7 dollars for one icee drink. We didn't do that much here. Was kind of boring. The only good thing for us was the beautiful views.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
