Chicago's best boat tours
You can walk the streets of Chicago and look up in awe at the towering buildings (maybe skip the ugly ones), but most of the city's architectural attractions are best appreciated from a different vantage point. In the summer, there are few better ways to see the sights than by taking a cruise along the river or riding up and down the coast of Lake Michigan. Whether you're interested in Chicago's history, want to watch some fireworks or just wave at your friend on the beach, there's probably a tour that will float your boat.
