Chicago’s Navy Pier is a must-visit destination and with a Chicago private yacht rental, you and your guests can arrive, and depart, in style and luxury aboard Adeline’s Sea Moose.
You can’t truly experience Chicago without a trip to Navy Pier located on Museum Campus. This 50-acre playground of entertainment, museums, activities, restaurants, and shops is the perfect place for some family fun time.
First on the list is a trip to Pier Park for a ride on the 150-foot Ferris wheel, which offers great city and Lake Michigan views and is open year-round. Also check out the whimsical musical carousel, Wave Swinger lift-and-twirl ride, miniature golf course, remote control boats, and more.
Next, grab the kids and go explore educational wonders at the Chicago Children’s Museum. Discover dozens of lively interactive exhibits such as BIG Backyard, Dinosaur Expedition, Inventing Lab, and the Kovler Family Climbing Schooner. Then get lost in Amazing Chicago’s Funhouse Maze where you’ll be entertained by the Mirror Maze, Spinning Tunnel, and more.
See a blockbuster on Chicago’s largest movie screen at the IMAX Theater. Or take a dynamic high-speed motion thrill ride to Antarctica, the moon and more on the Transporter FX.
Not limited to a specific season, entertainment at Chicago Shakespeare Theater delights year-round. Catch cutting edge performances and classics at this highly-regarded cultural institution, where their tradition of excellence has been recognized with the Regional Theater Tony Award, three Laurence Olivier Awards, and 70 total Joseph Jefferson Awards.
Spring and Summer Events
Spring is synonymous with flowers in Chicago and the Chicago Flower and Garden Show has your ticket to wash the winter blahs away.
During the summer months, take a bike, and even a Segway tour, all of which launch from Navy Pier, and many other places throughout the city for that matter. Hear the city’s hottest bands at the free admission Landshark Beer Garden from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and be dazzled by free fireworks displays on every Wednesday and Saturday night during the summer season. Holiday fireworks are particularly festive, with Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve shows lighting up the skies to the tune of patriotic music. A favorite among those who love history and all things nautical, the summer festival Tall Ships Chicago brings the majestic fleet of historic international vessels to our shore.
