Chicago's Architecture Foundation river cruise using the Chicago's First Lady boats. The river cruise tour is run by the foundation and volunteers hold the tours.
The cruise costs about $40 and it runs for 90 minutes. Weekends are really busy so be sure to book your tickets in advance. We showed up a bit earlier than the tour time and the line up was already quite long. If you want good seats at the top deck, you must be early and be sure to pack a hat (which I obviously forgot). Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are served at the lower deck bar.
Marina City - 61 twin-story tower is part residences, parking, marina and also boasts restaurants, hotels, shops, and theatre.
