Navy Pier: A Century of Reinvention DVD & Navy Pier Limited Edition Mug
It’s Chicago’s 3,000-foot-long exclamation point, reaching into Lake Michigan just northeast of the Loop. Since its 1916 opening Navy Pier has been an inland port, a military training center for two wars, a state university, and a top tourist attraction. As the Midwest’s number one leisure destination, it attracts nearly 9 million visitors annually who come seeking spectacular skyline views, Lake Michigan adventures, and family fun.
Join WTTW tour guide and host Geoffrey Baer for a day at Navy Pier as he explores its rich history through archival footage and interviews with well-known and ordinary Chicagoans. Hop aboard the Seadog speed boat, ride the brand new Ferris wheel, get a behind-the-scenes look at the fireworks show, and stop by Chicago Shakespeare Theater! You’ll see why Navy Pier remains such a popular place to dine, play or just take in a stunning view of Chicago’s lakefront and skyline.
