Make sure you spend at least one St. Patrick's Day at the Chicago River. Watch the plumbers boats turn the river kelly green! There are great restaurants and bars along the Riverwalk and of course the architecture all around is breathtaking.

Instead of walking along Wacker, consider opting for the Chicago River Walk downstairs. It's amazing how tranquil the river trail is relative to the bustling upstairs.

If the weather is nice, take the boat tour through the heart of the city because the views are spectacular.

To simply be. Whenever business carries me to Chicago, the first thing on my agenda to do when I have a moment to myself is go relax at The Chicago River. Always a source of Peace & Tranquility. An excellent photo shoot location as well. Living Akashi

The Chicago river might be dirty, but you can still enjoy it. There is a lovely river walk along the way you can find nice sitting spots, restaurants and bars. You can watch boats and see different views of this amazing city.
