I had the privilege of taking two architecture boat tours in the past 2 months which has been a pleasure.
I love Chicagoâ€™s architecture and always enjoy learning more about the buildings.
It had been a few years since my last boat tour, so it was neat to see the buildings completed that I had watched go up over the past few years.
I even forgot that Trump Tower used to be the site of the Sun-Times building which marred my favorite view of the skyline for so long.
The light was magnificent on the Saturday morning tour last week.
I was mesmerized by the reflection of water on the buildings, the glorious rays of the sun, and the crisp reflection of buildings in windows.
The most recommended tour is conducted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, but other museums also have volunteers speak on other boats.
I highly recommend taking a day to explore the tourist attractions in your home town.
You learn so much and it is wonderful to be able to introduce guests to your city in this way.
