Why locals love it

The CAF Architecture river cruise is an excellent way to learn about Chicago's famous architecture and the city's history. The tour takes you down the downtown branches of the Chicago river as well as out to Lake Michigan. The views are spectacular and the tour guides are fun and knowledgeable.

Why you should visit it

This tour gives travelers a great background of the history of the city and what makes it special. Obviously architecture and history buffs will love it but even kids will enjoy being on a boat and gazing at the skyscrapers.

Special tip

Check sites like Groupon and LivingSocial for tour deals and discounts. Bundle up if you go in the winter and wear sunscreen if it's warm out!

Several architecture river cruise operators in Chicago, but this one is the best. Leave it to the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) to teach you more about Chicago! Learn from the best. This tour is worth every penny.
