  • It's amazing that visitors to the fine city of Chicago do not see Navy Pier for what it is
  • The people who live in Chicago have found more interesting things to do and aren't automatically taken aback by the novelty of the lakefront and the fireworks and other entertainment that Navy Pier provides
  • If visitors want to enjoy the lakefront, I recommend just heading north to Lincoln Park

      It’s amazing that visitors to the fine city of Chicago do not see Navy Pier for what it is: the ultimate tourist trap. This park is full of lousy food-court style food, shops selling trashy souvenirs, and all the other trappings of a second-rate small town fair.

      Very few, if any of the booths


      or entertainment provide any real culture, and in fact, a lot of the activities are things that people could do in their own hometowns.

      The easiest way to tell that Navy Pier is uncool is to look around at the people who are there.

      Almost 100% of the visitors are tourists and newcomers to Chicago.

      • The people who live in Chicago have found more interesting things to do and aren’t automatically taken aback by the novelty of the lakefront and the fireworks and other entertainment that Navy Pier provides.

        I walked around Navy Pier one night for about 45 minutes and thought, “This is what people are excited about?”

        It need not even be located in Chicago! This is one attraction that I would urge everyone to skip, as Chicago has far more meaningful, interesting, educational, fun, and entertaining venues that are likely to provide more unique, memorable experiences for the money.

        If visitors want to enjoy the lakefront, I recommend just heading north to Lincoln Park.
