Today we took the Architectural Toure on the Chicago River. A guide explained all the history and facts associated with most of the buildings. We will be taking the Chicago River out of Chicago but now we will know more about the buildings we will be seeing for the second time.
Here are some views of Chicago from the Chicago River:
Carp are know to jump out of the water along the river when a boat passes through
Along the path to our toure boat
First in line for a rooftop seat
And we're off!
We can't remember any of the information we heard while on the toure but these are some of the buildings that were pointed out as interesting.and worth more than the land they are on.
The Boeing Store
The old Sears Building
World's biggest "you are here" map (see red dot)
Inside the 4th Presbyterian Church
Fake Viridian Waters (they put orange die in the water to make this color)
Lunch at the Purple Pig Restaurant
Where to start our shopping expedition?
