I recommend taking one of the many boat tours of the lake and the river. Great way to see the magnificent architecture of this beautiful city. Don't miss it!

We took the river walk back from Heymarket brewery. I love to see the architecture in the city. If you have the time it is a nice stroll.

The Chicago River is beautiful and just amazing, winding itself through the downtown area. It makes for some amazing photos! Our hotel was right on the river this time and our room looked out onto it. So pretty with the boats going up and down it all the time!

The Chicago River used to only be great on St Pat's day parade when they dye the river Kelly Green. But now the city has enhanced it to include boat rides, kyack rentals, restaurants, and a great walking path.
