Early start avoid crowds - Early morning walk before anyone turned up, first in line to do the centennial wheel is the best way to do Navy pier. It was so magical. Loved the views and Im sure we went round and round a lot longer due to being the only people on. Get up early people and enjoy the beautiful place. Also we went pre covid so cant comment on any current requirements.

Navy Pier - The entire pier is awesome for singles, kids,families and seniors. The ferris wheel is fantastic with secure closed seats including TV screens and more. But the Pier itself has so much more to offer...from rides, food( food courts, fine dining, fast-food and in between) museums ( the children's museum is fantastic) water features games spots for photo ops and more.

Must see - Very nice to walk around the pier and get to sight see and you can get some great pictures from the pier of the water and of the downtown. A lot of foot traffic on the weekend.

Question - Do you have to order tickets ahead of time before showing up? Or when your in town can you go and get tickets personally?

Navy Pier - Nice place to go shop and eat. Parking was outrageous at $32 for 90mins so we didn't see everything.

Great view - Was a nice and sunny sunday at the Navy Pier, so we decided to buy tickets for the Centennial Wheel. The line moved very fast, the workers were nice. I enjoyed the beautiful view of Chicago. So if you visit Chicago, you have to stop by.

Tourist thing to do - A spot for souvenir shopping or grabbing a bite to eat. The Ferris wheel is a must. Wheel circled 3 times. There is an option to buy tickets for a cart with a window floor. Cruise ships begin operations in March.

Over rated - I have been to Chicago hundreds of time but decided to do the touristy thing of going to Navy Pier with my son. The lines were outrageous and there is really nothing there other than the Ferris wheel. Don’t waste your time! So many wonderful things to see and do in Chicago but this is just a giant tourist trap!
