Welcome to THE CAPTAIN’S BLOG. This is the place to go for The Captain’s tips on where to drop anchor and find the best things to do and places to go in Chicago!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And no, we’re not talking about Christmas. It’s summer vacation, where anything goes! Across the city, folks are enjoying late nights out on the town, lazy afternoons on the beach, and of course shopping trips downtown. And beyond all of these summertime activities, you can easily find the crew at Shoreline Sightseeing leading our Boat Cruises and Walking Tours around the marvelous downtown and Loop areas!
Have you been on one of our Walking Tours? Let us give you a little introduction!
Shoreline Sightseeing runs four different Walking Tours, exploring areas from the West Loop to LaSalle Street to the Mag Mile. Each tour includes portions by boat on the Chicago River and of course lots by foot. Get ready for an adventurous journey through Chicago’s urban jungle, filled with many stops to admire the city’s impressive historical and contemporary skyscrapers. Bring your camera and your enthusiasm to learn more about Chicago’s rise from the Great Fire to the modern city it is today!
You’ll learn about famous buildings in the Loop like the Willis Tower and the Chicago Cultural Center during “Masters & Masterpieces: Chicago Loop.” Or travel with our “Behind the Facade: River North & the Mag Mile” tour where you’ll stop to see the Intercontinental Building, the Wrigley Building, and the Tribune Tower. In “The Beginnings of the Melting Pot: Chicago’s West Loop,” we take a look at many different architectural styles from St. Patrick’s Church to Union Station. And our final tour, “Dressed to Impress: The LaSalle Street Canyon,” focuses on Chicago’s fashion corridor all the way from the Michigan Avenue dock to the LaSalle Street Bridge.
We at Shoreline Sightseeing hope you all have a wonderful summer. Come spend some of it with us; we’ll give you a little lesson on your own backyard, as well as a good summer workout. See you on the sidewalks!
