Chicago Architecture Boat Tour

Earlier this month, my mom and I hosted a Chicago bridal shower for my soon-to-be-sister-in-law, Kate, which you can read about here.

The next day, my parents, Kate and I spent some time at Navy Pier.

Kate was so excited when she saw this work of art celebrating her soon-to-be new last name!

The day was so nice that we decided it was the perfect opportunity to go on a Chicago Architecture Boat Tour with Shoreline Sightseeing. It’s something Kate and I had been wanting to do, and it seemed like the ideal time to cruise down the river while learning about Chicago’s skyline.

We settled in, got some drinks, and took some selfies.

Our guide was fabulous, and pointed out some buildings that I’d never even noticed before, and I’m from Chicago! We learned how the city’s prominent landmarks were built, and the history behind different design changes. It was absolutely fascinating, and I’m not even an architecture buff!

It was such a unique vantage point seeing these buildings from the water. Especially Chicago’s most famous skyscraper, the Willis Tower, pronounced “Sears Tower.”

We all loved it, and can’t recommend the tour enough! In fact, we want to go back next time Josh and Greg are in town, too!
