Foundation Architecture Cruise
One of the most exciting yet insightful things your group can do while in Chicago is the Foundation Architecture Cruise, a TripAdvisor selection for one of the Top Ten Tours in the United States. Locals and tourists alike call this the ‘best way to see Chicago’, a spectacular way to learn all about the architecture and design of over 50 iconic buildings along the famous Lake Michigan shoreline. CAF-certified docents will lead you on a 90-minute adventure in this open-air and air-conditioned vessel that offers snacks and full bar service.
Learn all about how the city of Chicago grew from a mere small back-country outpost into one of the world’s most important crossroads in less than 100 years during your educational and entertaining cruise experience. Your group will also hear the real story of Chicago architecture and it’s history, and not just the legends, fables, or tidbits of quick info you get on all the brochures and dedication plaques.
Learn all you can, ask questions, take in the sites, and bring a camera to take photos along this amazing tour route. Just remember when looking for this tour just find the blue awning in the southeast corner of the Michigan Avenue Bridge, off of Wacker Drive. Chicago Field Trips
