Sailing on either Chicago River or Lake Michigan, the educational boat tours offered by Chicago Line Cruises are some of the city's most popular sightseeing opportunities. Whether you're a newcomer or local, the company’s knowledgeable guides provide 90 minutes of informative facts about the Windy City. The architectural cruise is hailed as one of the city’s best, while the historical cruise shares stories about everything from fur trading to the first department store. Cruise-goers can indulge in complimentary coffee, soda, and sweets, and during the summer, there is even a cocktail cruise.

Insider Tip:

Early birds should consider the 8 a.m. architectural tour; it’s half-price, it’s easier to snag a seat on the top deck, and the clearer waterways enable great photo ops.
