Travel editors and visitors alike have acclaimed the pedestrian south dock of Navy Pier as one of the best boardwalks in America. At 2,000 feet long, the south dock runs west to east and is connected to the Pier, inviting you to experience the activities and attractions that dot its path.
A few highlights from this promenade include dining and sightseeing cruise boats and, of course, Lake Michigan.
As part of The Centennial Vision for Navy Pier, recent and ongoing improvements made to the south dock have included new paving stones, tree groves and native plantings as well as a green infrastructure for the Pier’s stormwater management system. Access to the lake and lakefront views, big sky and the Chicago skyline are all within your line of sight from the south dock.
