"Boat trip" The Chicago River Tip by leffe3

The Chicago River, Chicago: 59 reviews and 99 photos


A great way of seeing the full-on affect of the cityscape of Chicago is to take a boat trip along the Chicago River and tributaries - you are below street level and really do get an ant's eye view of the towering blocks that have dominated the Chicago skyline since the early part of the 20th century.

Directions: cuts down the center of downtown, East to West
