Great place to go for a stroll amid all the big buildings. I took some great pictures of the reflections on buildings off the water and onto other buildings.

The river is a great way to explore the city. The best way to see it is with an architectural boat tour -- one of the highlights of a visit to Chicago. The river takes center stage during St. Patrick's Day when it "turns" green in honor of the Irish community.

Winding through the city and one of the reasons Chicago has grown through history. Best experienced on a boat tour, on Saint Patrick's Day (when it is dyed green), and over one of the many bridges.

My favorite waterway in all the Midwest. Yes, I've seen the Mississippi. There's a little park by the State Street Bridge where I used to go and sit and watch the world go by. It was great.

A part of the city that outsiders don't often think about, the Chicago River is one of the sites that make the city so unique. Unfortunately, I can't say as much about the restaurants that line the river - great views, mediocre food. Hopefully I will eventually find an exception.

Before Chicago became the great city it now is the river flowed into Lake Michigan, now with Channel Locks being installed the river actually flows the opposite direction. Now it are those same locks that are attempting to hold back the Asian Carp that would devastate the fish in Lake Michigan if they made there way in.Recommended for:Green Travelers
