Always a good sightseeing spot but it is particularly beautiful at night. There are plenty of restaurants and bars along the river for a great evening wind down.

We walked along the river one morning to get views of Chicago from a different perspective. Lots of dog walkers out. A very pretty and peaceful stroll.

Hard to believe it was once so polluted you could walk across it. Also that it flowed opposite to what it does today. Great asset. Enjoyable.
