Your Chicago architecture cruise begins when you make your way past the lakefront and the series of canal locks that separate Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Once you’re on the river, you’ll see the skyline in all its glory. so be sure to have your camera ready!

Chicago is home to more than 1,200 high-rise buildings, and you’ll see plenty of them throughout your tour as well as many other impressive structures.
