Because we are in the Windy City for 72 hours only (take out a few hours for sleep and lots and lots of hours for eating), we can’t help but do shortcuts on sightseeing.
So we join Shoreline’s Architecture River Cruise.
Today is not really the perfect warm and sunny day to be outdoors and join river cruises. See how people are all covered up. (Well, except for that one fearless man enjoying his ice cold drink) But what the heck. If he can do it, so can I!
After the cruise, we walk to the nearby Navy Pier…
… get a hot Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, a bag of Garrett popcorn and leave right away.
I seriously think this place is for children ages 15 and below.
