What You’ll Do

There’s a reason why Chicago was built along a river. During this 75-minute interactive experience, you’ll learn about the relationship between the city and its waterway, and get an up-close look at the massive bridges that span the Chicago River. Experienced guides with knowledge of history and architecture lead the way.

  • Explore a Bridgehouse
    Scale the five stories of the McCormick Bridgehouse—the only such structure open to the public—and visit its gear room to see just how it works.

  • Walk Along the Waterfront
    After leaving the bridgehouse, you’ll stroll the streets that run along the river and visit three other bridges.

  • Things to Know
    Wear good walking shoes, and bring sunscreen or a hat.
