One of the lesser known services offered by Navy Pier is also one of the most cost effective because it’s FREE! Navy Pier offers a free trolley to and from many of the most popular locations in Chicago. This service runs year round, but has exclusive hours during this most wonderful time of year!
If you are looking for what to do in Chicago this winter, or have already heard about the 11th Annual Winter WonderFest at Navy Pier, but don’t feel inclined to drive or take advantage of the reduced parking prices available now through March 18, then please step right this way and board Navy Pier’s Free Trolley offerings on select dates and hours.
Once you’ve made it to Navy Pier, via the Free Trolley, you are in for yet another surprise! New this year at Navy Pier you can take a ride on a sleigh pulled by two draft horses on select dates of Winter WonderFest along the south dock between the west and east ends of Navy Pier!
