Chicago is a beautiful city with so much to offer. One of the best ways to tour this city is by way of boat. There are some excellent options near One Eleven Apartments that you do not want to miss.

Chicago’s First Lady

Among the best ways to see Chicago is aboard Chicago’s First Lady’s Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise. The daily, 90-minute tour was named one of the Top 10 Tours in the U.S. by TripAdvisor. Tour guides are from the Chicago Architecture Foundation and it is a fantastic way to get to know your city. We recommend arriving 30-45 minutes early to get the best seats. Rumor has it the best views are from the top. Buy your tickets ahead of time because they do sell out! Chicago’s First Lady can be chartered for private events and weddings. Just see the website for details.

Chicago Electric Boat Company

If you would rather be captain of your own boat, rent an easy-to-drive electric boat from Chicago Electric Boat Company. Bring your friends, your own beverages and snacks, and chart your own course. You can hire a Captain, which allows you to go into the waters of Lake Michigan, or hire a Tour Guide to learn more about the city. To avoid traffic on the river, consider going on weekdays around sunset.

Urban Kayaks

Another terrific and economical way to see the city from the river is by kayak. Urban Kayaks has several tour options including Intro Paddle for beginners, Sunset Tours and more. No matter your age, experience or fitness level, there is a tour that is best suited for you. Be sure to wear clothes and shoes that can get wet and bring a change of clothing.

At One Eleven Apartments you are never far from adventure right in the heart of the city! When looking for a great home in a vibrant neighborhood, contact us and come see for yourself what home looks like.
