The 90 minute cruise on the Chicago River took us past the many iconic buildings of Chicago. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable and made each structure come to life.
We faced the Trump Tower as we started our tour. The clouds were still at the top of the building and emitted an aura that was unusual.
The tour gave me a new appreciation for buildings in the city. The Sears Tower is now the Willis Tower.
After the tour, we walked over to Navy Pier. While crossing the bridge, we got a great view of the fountain that sprays water over the river on the hour. It represents the work done to create the canal and have the water no longer drain into Lake Michigan and to drain downstream. This allowed fresh drinking water from Lake Michigan.
