  • Chicago has the great river on like own front yard.
  • Very beautiful and scenic surrounded by several state of the art buildings making Chicago an architectural wonder.
  • Went on Shoreline Sightseeing Architecture Boat Tour. It was an awesome perspective of the city and tour guide was super knowledgeable. He even started playing blues music on a harmonica at the end of the cruise.
  • It's beautiful on the river! Its so full of life down there. There are a lot of hidden gems like an ice cream stand, bags, & Bocce ball courts. Definitely take a stroll.
  • Iconic bridges hover over this historical river.
