Beautiful option for families and also anyone interested in transportation via Chinatown/downtown/north ave. This runs from Ping-Tom park through the Chicago River and onto the magnificent mile. Absolutely worth a visit.

Wendalla runs several sorts of boat tours on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. I like the architecture tours that take you up the river to highlight the buildings on the river banks. Take a sunset tour so you end up on the lake at twilight to see the cityscape lit up.

Water taxi can be a nice way to avoid the hectic street traffic in Chicago. On a clear day - early in the morning or just about sundown chugging along the river amidst the sky scrapers will provide you good photo opportunities.
