I moved to Chicago after graduating from college over 18 years ago. From the moment I arrived in Chicago I fell in love with the city. Chicago is a very special city. Its well known for its architecture and of course food! There is nothing better than summer in Chicago. Am I right?We all enjoy the lakefront, the RiverWalk , sports (go cubs!) , festivals and much more!
One of the best way to take in the architecture is from the Chicago River. I have been on several tours on the river but this summer I discovered Chicago Electric Boat Company. I had no idea that you could rent an electric boat and take a cruise on the river!
I am still hanging on to summer (luckily the temperatures have been cooperating) and booked a 2 hour cruise last Saturday with the Chicago Electric Boat Company. I gathered Kristin, my sister, mom and sorority sister and we packed up some snacks and sangria to head out for a cruise on the river!
It was a perfect September day. We cruised all the way down to China Town and back to the Lake Michigan Locks. It was a great way to take photos of our favorite city.
Chicago Electric Boat Company makes the experience safe and easy. You meet them on the river front below House of Blues. They will validate your parking if you park at the House of Blues. You watch a video, a captain will go over safety instructions, how to drive and you will also receive a walkie talkie that will allow you to communicate with the Chicago Electric Company. You will then be on your way! You can get a captain to drive the boat for an additional charge.
We received a 2 hour boat trip by Chicago Electric Boat Company for review purposes. Our opinions are honest and our own.
