A Vibrant Picture Of Navy Pier Chicago, Illinois Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The colour and excitement of Navy Pier, Chicago, Illinois are perfectly displayed on this acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. When looking at the picture you can almost hear the noise and excitement of this fifty acre entertainment site. Designed by Daniel Burnham, and built in 1916, the pier was intended to be a multi-purpose structure. Its original primary use was as a cargo station for freighters but it also served as a drop off point for river passengers and as an outdoor meeting and entertainment area. Today it is an entertainment centre with such attractions as a giant Ferris wheel, a museum, and an IMAX cinema.
The Excitement Of Navy Pier In Chicago, Illinois
The fun centre of Navy Pier, on the banks of Lake Michigan in Chicago, is the city’s number one tourist attraction. Visitors may get lost in The Maze, a sensory experience with mirrors and a spinning tunnel. For more thrills and fun there is a multi-thrill transporter which is a high speed motion ride where visitors can choose to travel to the moon, on a racetrack, or through wild Africa. For something a little different there are Segway sightseeing tours of Chicago available. During the summer months Navy Pier is the place to be on a Wednesday and Saturday evening when a colourful fireworks display lights the skies above Lake Michigan. Although, as can be seen from our attractive acrylic fridge magnet, Navy Pier and its surroundings make for a magnificent sight with or without fireworks.
