Chicago is one of the world’s most beautiful and scenic cities, welcoming millions of visitors that appreciate all the city has to offer on an annual basis. Whether it be arts and culture, fine dining, sporting events, history, live entertainment, and so much more, Chicago has it all. And one feature that really draws a great deal of interest with visitors is the city’s unique and historic architecture.
Touring the city on your own over the landscape (auto, bus, train) is fine, but if you want to learn more about the sights you’re seeing, you won’t learn much this way. One uniquely scenic way to view Chicago’s wonderful architecture from a unique perspective few see it from while enjoying a leisurely ride and learning a great deal of what you’re taking in along the way is to take a river and lake cruise Chicago.
If you might be interested in a river and lake cruise Chicago tourists have long loved, go with the best tour of the city (as rated by TripAdvisor, and a company in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame). Go on the one and only cruise that is partnered with the Chicago Architecture Center, which provides a wonderful 90-minute tour.
Tour guests can choose indoor or outdoor seating for their comfort as they hear an entertaining and detailed narrative that outlines the city’s architectural styles as well as stories about those great, historical figures that designed and built this great town. And if the mood should strike you, there is a full-service bar and snack bar on board. Many riders really enjoy grabbing a beverage and a snack, and then settle in for this much-anticipated cruise adventure.
Cruises take place multiple times daily, Spring through Fall. For special cruises during the morning and evenings, check the company website for times and dates of availability.
