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 is close to some of Chicago's best waterfront dining. All four districts of the Riverwalk are open daily to visitors from 6am to 11pm, though restaurants and other vendors have their own hours. Some vendors haven't opened for the season yet—so be sure to check these spots' opening dates & whether or not you need a reservation. Without further ado, here are the best things to do along the Chicago Riverwalk.
