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!
September is approaching, and that means fall is too. Sweater weather is almost here, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t go out and have some fun!
The Chicago Bears will kickoff there season at home on September 8 and Shoreline will have a Water Taxis service that can take you to and from the game! Taking one of our water taxis to the game is an easy of getting to Soldier Field plus you avoid the hassle of traffic! There are many different locations to get aboard our ships too. Locations include Michigan Avenue’s bridge, Sears Tower/Union Station, and Navy Pier.
Last Fireworks Cruise
Navy Pier will host their last fireworks of the season on Labor Day weekend so if you have yet to make it on a Shoreline Fireworks Cruise, now is the time! Watching this spectacular show from the water is the perfect way to end a romantic evening out on the town (or get the night started, either way!). Tickets for the Fireworks Cruise can be bought here.
Chicago is big into its music festivals and while we have had plenty already this year, they are not done yet! The Chicago Summer Dance festival will be going on until September 15 at The Spirit of Music Garden in Grant Park. This series offers the opportunity of an introductory dance lessons by professional instructors followed by a two hours of live music and dancing.
The World Music Festival will take place September 12-22 and will be held at multiple venues throughout the city. This eleven day event has attracted over 600,000 concertgoers and has presented more than 600 artists/ensembles from over 80 countries since it started in 1999.
A new program this year will be The Chicago Music Summit taking place on September 20. This program is presented by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events aims to shine a spotlight on Chicago’s vibrant music scene and connects musicians and entrepreneurs with local, national, and international industry professionals.
September is a very exciting and fun month for Chicago and hopefully you can find something exciting to do! Whether this September is a warm one or a cold one, it is sure to at least be a fun one!
