When in Chicago, take the architecture boat tour for a one-of-a-kind experience of the city’s downtown core and an introduction to history, architecture and the emergence of the current hustle and bustle synonymous with the Windy City.
You`ll find the architecture boat tours departing from the Wendella Dock at Trump Tower with prices ranging from $31-$46 for 75 to 90 minutes of touring the waters running through downtown Chicago.
The tour is family friendly and designed to entertain and educate in a breezy atmosphere with witty yet very well informed tour guides that bring different architectural styles and their creators closer to everyone.
Make sure you arrive 15-20 early to get the desired seats on the boat. In the summer you are likely to find a tour starting within the next 30-45 minutes with one of the boating companies whenever you arrive, and if you wish to take a particular tour out of many, consult with the tour schedule that is available online.
Another useful tip – pick a hot day as it is much cooler when you`re on the water. Taking the architecture boat tour for the Fourth of July weekend ensures the sunny weather, festive people and a glowing town for you to enjoy.
