Navy Pier

Opening in 1916, Navy Pier delighted Chicagoans by creating a mixed-use pier. Entertainment, shops, and restaurants were now side-by-side with busy shipping and transit companies. This historical landmark on the waters of Lake Michigan greets all who pass into Chicago by boat. With over 9 million visitors per year, Navy Pier is the most visited landmark in the Midwest. While on the pier, look to the east for a great view of Chicago’s 120 year old (and still active!) lighthouse.

Found just on the border of the Old Town Triangle, the center was founded in 1856 to study and preserve Chicago’s history. Although much of the early collection was ultimately lost during the 1871 Great Chicago Fire, the museum’s collection is now reported to hold 22 million items.
