We enjoyed very much the one hour architecture cruise on the Chicago river. We boarded Shoreline's Star of Chicago from Navy Pier. The guide was very knowledgeable of the history of architecture of Chicago.
We saw numbers of buildings of which many are important landmarks of Chicago such as Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower, 333 West Wacker Drive with its sleek curved glass walls, IBM building, Sears Tower, Marina City, etc.
