Chicago’s First Lady Cruises

It is so nice that they are finally utilizing all the space along the river for outdoor activities and dining!
Wow. Probably the best bang for your buck in Chicago if you love: outdoors; tours; history; sunshine; boats; architecture; trivia; photography; sight-seeing & education.

At this point, I had 0 experience or interest in running outdoors.
Chicago Architecture Center
#6 of 122 Outdoor Activities in Chicago
I found the outdoor views and history fascinating but the indoor stops opened up a grand view of Chicago of a hundred plus years.
Most of the tour is spent outdoors, so dress appropriately (some in our group were woefully under-dressed for the -10 C weather!).

Shoreline Sightseeing
#7 of 122 Outdoor Activities in Chicago
Plenty of outdoor seating and a terrific friendly staff.
The boat is all open-air and one one "floor" (e.g., there is no "indoor" lower deck and outdoor upper deck, like some boat tours have).
