Ever since it was expanded in 2015, the Chicago Riverwalk has become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. The waterfront attraction boasts cocktail bars, views of some of Chicago's most beautiful buildings and access to one of our favorite boat tours.
As of June 12, the Riverwalk has reopened to visitors, with designated times for recreation and dining. From 5am to 10am, guests are welcome to run, jog, walk and bike along the path between Lake Shore Drive and Lake Street. The Riverwalk briefly closes at 10am for cleaning and then reopens from 11am to 9pm to allow access to businesses and select recreation areas along the path.
While some Riverwalk restaurants and businesses allow walk-up customers, some require a reservation, so call ahead if you're unsure. Don't forget to bring along a face covering (they're required), maintain 6 feet of distance from other visitors and stay home if you're feeling sick.
