About Navy Pier

In a densely urban area, waterfront property is at a premium. But that doesn’t stop the Navy Pier parking proudly on the shore of Lake Michigan. More

Due to its role as one of the premiere tourist attractions in Chicago, it is often packed with enough visitors that booking a Navy Pier parking space ahead of one’s visit is just common sense.

 

The idea for Navy Pier surfaced in 1909 with Daniel Burnham and his plan for Chicago. Only one of the scheduled five piers were built, but it proved sufficient for the Navy during WWI. After the war, it was used mostly for recreation, but was called in for duty for World War II. It acted as a training center during the war, and later as a campus for UIC before it moved to its current Circle Campus.

 

Navy Pier was renovated considerably following over two decades of disuse, reopening in 1995 at a cost of $200 million. No longer a place to train for war, the pier hosts the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, a magnificent ferris wheel and the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows, among other attractions. Navy Pier is famous for its fireworks displays, with twice-weekly firings in the summer and once weekly in the autumn. The multi-colored blasts light up the Chicago lakefront, providing a fitting bookend for the end of an exciting day.

 

The Navy Pier Ferris wheel was based off the designs of the original Ferris Wheel, which was unveiled to the world at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. Each ride on the wheel is seven minutes long, and shows its riders the beauty of the Chicago skyline and the tranquility of Lake Michigan. The view is especially beautiful when the Navy Pier Chicago fireworks light up the sky, bathing the night sky in lustrous light.

 

Navy Pier Chicago is large enough to host its own IMAX Theatre, which are movie theaters with massive screens and sound systems to engage the theater-goer. In addition to attractions, there is also a large amount of shopping and dining that can be done at Navy Pier Chicago. Restaurants include Bubba Gump Shrimp, Harry Caray’s Tavern, the Billy Goat Tavern and Haagen-Dazs. The shopping area is also vast, including stores that focus on souvenirs, apparel, gifts, Chicago-related merchandise, toys and snacks. Planning ahead before going to Navy Pier is always a good idea, especially when it comes to parking, so it’s always smart to book a Navy Pier parking spot in advance with ParkWhiz.

 

All you need to do is go to ParkWhiz, find a parking facility with parking near Navy Pier, and print your ParkWhiz parking pass. Bring your pass with you to the Navy Pier parking facility, and enjoy your day.
