About Navy Pier

Navy Pier has been the home of many of Chicago’s most important institutions, but today it hosts a variety of cultural events that attract millions of visitors every year. At times, it’s family-friendly, and other times, it’s a total party. Enjoy the Winter Wonderfest, a fireworks show, an open-air movie, or the magnificent Centennial Wheel. Before the pier was the festive destination it is today, it was a U.S. Navy training grounds and mess hall. Then it became part of the University of Illinois at Chicago campus. After the Navy and the University vacated, the pier fell into disuse from 1966 until about 1995, when it was given new life as an events venue. Over the last 20 years, Navy Pier has become a vibrant home to arts and culture.

Why charter a bus to visit Navy Pier

There are parking lots near Navy Pier, but it’s such a popular destination that those lots are often full. Have a Chicago charter bus drop you off at the Pier and pick you up at the end of the day. You can organize an itinerary with multiple stops including airport pick-up, hotel drop-off, and stops at all your favorite Chicago must-sees. We recommend renting a coach bus. They have extra amenities like wifi, air conditioning, and on-board restrooms that make long trips more comfortable.

About the location and the surrounding area

Navy Pier is the easternmost point of Streeterville, an area named after “Captain” George Willington Streeter (whose Captain-ness is very much in dispute). Today this coastal corner of Streeterville offers a lot to explore. It’s part industrial park and part natural wonderland. Right next to Navy Pier, jutting out into Lake Michigan, is the Jardine Water Purification Plant. This plant purifies the water for all of Chicago and is the largest plant of its kind. Contrasting this massive industrial structure are the natural spaces that surround the entrance to Navy Pier. There’s the Ohio Street Beach, Milton Lee Olive Park, Jane Addams Memorial Park, and Polk Bros Park. A concert or sporting event might have attracted you to the area, but be sure to take some time to discover the secrets of Streeterville.
