Chicago by Boat
My German cousin Ingrid and her husband, Reiner, recently came to Chicago to visit for the first time ever! We started the sightseeing by taking in an architectural boat tour on the Chicago River. I can't think of a prettier, more relaxing way to get introduced to the city where I grew up. And of all the historical and architectural talks my aunt Mary Therese Griffin took on after she "retired" from being a history teacher, this particular tour, with its lake breezes and soaring skyscrapers and colorful background, was by far her favorite for many years. You can book a tour of your own at www.chicagoline.com.
