CHICAGO NAVY PIER TOUR | Nepali BrewBoy Adventures

Navy Pier, Chicago, IL Of the many and varied attractions in Chicago, its most-visited is still the Navy Pier. Originally Municipal Pier #2, it was designed and built to serve as a cargo facility, passenger dock, and public gathering place. Jutting out onto Lake Michigan, the pier provided a cooler, breezier place than the city for crowds to attend entertainments during the stuffy summers, and had its own tram service out to the edge for those who didn’t wish to walk. When it opened to the public in 1916, it was the largest pier in the world. During the 1910s, automobiles and trucks were beginning to take over some of the weight of transportation from ships, which delivered both freight and passengers to Chicago’s port. Thus its primary function became as an entertainment site, and steamboat traffic decreased. The pier was completed just in time for use in WWI, when military personnel and Red Cross workers took up residence during 1917-1918. After the war, the roaring twenties ushered in a streetcar line, theatre, auditorium, dance hall, radio station, dining pavilions, and the ‘Pageant of Progress’ in 1922. In 1927, in honor of WWI veterans who had served there, it officially became Navy Pier. The pier saw many other notable moments in history, including the 1933 World’s Fair Century of Progress Exposition, Great Depression New Deal agencies, and conversion to a naval training center for the U.S. military during WWII. Following WWII, it became a college campus primarily serving returning veterans, until the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976 returned it to public use. Music and art festivals shared the pier with exhibition halls, and in 1989, a major overhaul brought new life to the pier. Currently, the pier is home to a variety of entertainments and attractions, including its own Ferris wheel, IMAX theatre, concert stage, ballroom, public art installations, miniature golf course, funhouse maze, beer garden, and Pier Park, a small amusement park set on the upper deck beside the Crystal Gardens. Cultural attractions include the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Chicago Children’s Museum, and Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows. Sightseeing, architecture, and dinner cruises launch from the pier, and during the summer, there are even fireworks. There is, in short, something for everyone. Seasonal festivals range from Tall Ships Chicago, the Inuit Show of Folk & Outsider Art, and Chicago Toy & Game Fair, to the Chicago Flower & Garden Show, Winter WonderFest, and Snow Days Chicago. I was in town for the latter two, which were more than enough to keep me busy during my visit. Winter WonderFest is an indoor winter festival, where you can ice skate, toboggan, ride a holiday train or carousel, climb a snowy mountain wall, or stand inside a snow globe…all in the warm comfort of the indoors. Snow Days Chicago requires you to get a little chillier, but you can snowboard, visit with penguins from nearby Shedd Aquarium, or attend the most spectacular attraction, the snow sculpting competition. Chicago is fun to visit anytime, but there’s something especially enchanting about Navy Pier in December. There are holiday lights everywhere, and the pier is jam-packed with restaurants and shops. It’s a perfect place to spend a day relaxing and enjoying the season. Don’t worry too much about making a plan—you’ll find plenty to see and do just wandering around the pier. I will make a plug for the stained glass museum, which was a strange, wonderful glimpse into the old mansions of Chicago, through the art of Louis Comfort Tiffany and other masters.

They always ignore how bad the shootings, homicides, murders, drugs, human trafficking, gang violence, drive-by shootings, innocent bystanders hit by random bullets, bicycles hit by cars and big rig trucks mostly on the west side, west of the Loop and south side that is south of the Eisenhower Expressway. And also north of Rogers Park around Howard and Clark and Uptown. https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1C1zMOFEfuvs8yPH8ydvQj5m0_AA&hl=en_US&ll=41.973543391018055%2C-87.58783820762022&z=12
