What you can expect

Welcome to Chicago’s scenic Riverwalk. Spanning from Lake Michigan west to Franklin Street. Called the city's 'Second Lakefront', the Riverwalk contains restaurants during the summer months, seating areas to relax, boat rentals, and theater-style seating for various performances. Other attractions along the Riverwalk include the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza, and the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum and if you are lucky enough, see a bridge lift from inside the bridge house.

Once you book a tour, you’ll immediately get a confirmation email. Soon, you’ll get two more messages: a text and an email.

To begin touring, go to the Starting Point and launch the tour. Stick to the tour route & speed limit for the best experience.
