Architecture Foundation River Cruise, architectural boat tour
112 East/Wacker Drive
This 90-minute architectural boat cruise on the Chicago River is an excellent and relaxing way of gaining an overview of the city’s most important buildings and skyscrapers. The Chicago Architecture Foundation’s knowledgeable guides conduct several of these tours each day and tickets entitle passengers an open-air deck seat on a boat operated by Chicago’s First Lady Cruises – thus guaranteeing the best possible view. It’s a good idea to book in advance via the Internet, as tours are often sold out, especially in summer.
