This hundred-year-old pier was turned into a popular public meeting place with millions of visitors each year. Spanning more than 30 acres, this park offers something to everyone.
Foodies can seek new food experiences in local restaurants, art-lovers will adore the variety of outdoor sculptures and there is also a lovely botanical garden, hidden inside a glass atrium.
If you take your kids with you, bring also some extra money to spend, because the pier with its colourful carousels and many other outdoor attractions is a paradise for adventure-loving children. And if they get bored with the carousels, you can take them to the Amazing Chicago's Funhouse Maze – a labyrinth full of games and challenging tasks, not only for kids, but for adults as well.
Opening hours depend on the season and may be subject to change. They apply to most merchants.
Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Admission to the pier is free. Parking and other attractions require separate fees.
