View Chicago From a Boat

While visiting the great city of Chicago, be sure to view the beauty of our skyline  from a boat cruise on Lake Michigan.  What a spectacular way to experience the history of architectural design surrounding this city.

There are thousands of boats lining the harbors of Chicago with every type of cruising vessel you can imagine from sailboats to dinner cruise mega-yachts.  There is an experience for everyone along the lakefront and on the Chicago River.  Sightseeing excursions and architectural tours are available throughout the summer along the shoreline. 


"The Chicago skyline, as seen from a boat, is one of the top ten most spectacular panoramic views in all of America" - The Society of American Travel Writers


Don't forget your camera because day or night the skyline views of historic buildings, skyscrapers and landmarks make excellent souveniers.  The old lighthouse located just east of Navy Pier is another impressive photo opportunity for your future wall decoration.
