Chicago: A City Second To None

I’ve always had a slight obsession with Chicago. Maybe it was all those John Hughes movies I watched growing up. Maybe it was all the road trips we took from Atlanta (where I’m from) to Milwaukee (to see family), driving through Chicago, marveling at the amazing skyline, but rarely allowed to stop. I was lucky enough to live there for six years and love to go back to visit. When I do, I love anything and everything about the city’s architecture and history.

The best way to see Chicago is on an architectural river cruise. These cruises provide a great overview and give visitors unprecedented insight into what makes Chicago such a great city. Lake Michigan frames Chicago’s eastern shore, but the Chicago River, which runs in reverse from the lake, cuts through the heart of the city, and is represented by the two blue stripes on the city’s flag.

Kaleidoscope Adventures specializes in sending student groups to Chicago. There is so much to do in this city – attractions, museums, parks, sports, shopping and regional cuisine like Chicago-style hot dogs and deep-dish pizza. With so much to do, a Chicago River cruise is the perfect way for your student group to sit back, relax, and discover this city that is second to none.
