Features: Chicago Shoreline Architecture River Tours are a great way to explore the cradle of modern American architecture, Chicago. You can find a variety of tours offered by Shoreline Sightseeing in Chicago, including three different Architecture River Tours. These exciting Chicago cruises have knowledgeable guides to share with you Chicago's dramatic rise to the sky.

Why We Go: Shoreline Sightseeing offers 3 great ways to get an overview of Chicago's famous architecture, and see the city from a very different point-of-view, the water.

  • Architecture River Tours: This one-hour cruise takes you up all three branches of the Chicago River sharing the amazing history and architecture of Chicago.
  • Architecture/Fireworks Cruise: These cruises run most Wednesday and Saturday nights during the fall. They are much like the Architecture River Tours, but end with a bang. The cruise ends with an up-close view of Navy Pier's famous fireworks show.
  • Night Architecture River Tours: Get the same information as you would on the river tours, but from a slightly different perspective! The view is strikingly different with the skyline lit up with life in the dark. These tours are great for a fun date night, or relaxing and very entertaining way to keep sightseeing in Chicago after after a long day of walking around.

Inside Knowledge: The nighttime Chicago Architecture River Tours have a cash bar, and the drinks are very reasonably priced.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring your kids: on the various Chicago Architecture Tours, especially the ones ending with fireworks. Kids 2 and under- FREE!
  • Do Check out some of the other great cruises offered by Shoreline Sightseeing in Chicago. They have so many great tours that take place day and night, like the Skyline Tours, Fireworks Cruises and their Water Taxis.
  • Don't Forget your camera: because the boat offers amazing views of Chicago's skyline. You can go home with some great shots of the skyscrapers that glisten like jewels, or the water that sparkles and reflects the city's beauty.
  • Don't Wait: to book your cruise because they fill up fast, and you don't want to miss this wonderful opportunity.
