Chicago Trip - Day 2, Architecture Boat Tour
The Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise aboard the Chicago’s First Lady fleet is a “must” for out-of-towners and Chicagoans alike. Expert volunteer tour guides—called docents—interpret more than 50 buildings along the Chicago River, revealing how the city grew from a small back-country outpost into one of the world’s most important crossroads in less than 100 years.
The tour provided an overview of historic and modern architectural styles, plus many stories about the people who designed and built Chicago.
