There is something about this picture that makes me feel like it was taken down south somewhere along the Mississippi River. It’s not, however, as it’s the tour boat “Bright Star” ferrying passengers down the Chicago River.
On weekends there is heavy, heavy boat traffic on Chicago‘s most famous waterway. There are several companies offering tourists a ride up and down the branches of the Chicago River, all the while giving information on various things located throughout the city. Most tours take about an hour and are a unique and fun way to learn about the city in which I love.
