Cruise down the Chicago River and learn about Chicago’s history with Shoreline Sightseeing. My daughter and I caught an online deal and enjoyed a balmy day with our tour guide, Javier. His keen wit and depth of knowledge kept passengers engaged and entertained for the 75 minute tour. We boarded at the Michigan Avenue Bridge location and found no waiting and plenty of elbow room for our boat ride and photos.
We discovered the history of Chicago through its landmarks. Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper and home of many renowned architects. The highlights include the history of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 which resulted in an architectural boom and the Chicago World’s Fair and Commerce in the Windy City. The Sears Tower now the Willis Tower is North America’s tallest building.
