Join Shoreline for a dramatic Architecture River Tour, Classic Lake Tour, or thrilling Fireworks Tour. Architecture Tours are led by experienced, entertaining Shoreline guides who are passionate about Chicago's great architecture. Learn how Chicago rose from the ashes of the Great Fire of 1871 to become the birthplace of the skyscraper and the home of modern American architecture as you view more than 40 landmarks along the historic Chicago River. Architecture Tours depart day and evening from Navy Pier or the Michigan Avenue Bridge. (please note: the Michigan Avenue Bridge dock is open for Architecture Tours during the 2106 construction.) Shoreline's Classic Lake Tours cover the entire panorama of Chicago's world-famous skyline and are accompanied by a professional recorded narration on the city's history and landmarks.
