Things To Do
Chicago is a sprawling city that is home to incredible dining, art, sightseeing opportunities, and outdoor fun. With unique neighborhoods and districts that celebrate an abundance of cultures, there’s something for everyone in Chi Town. Home to the iconic “Cloud Gate” (also known as The Bean) mirrored sculpture, Navy Pier, Wrigley Field, and the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, Chicago is a must-see city for adventurous travelers looking to experience a little bit of everything in a bustling urban environment. Explore the riverfront, learn about the history of the city on an architectural tour, or book a boat party and experience the epic “Playpen” area of Lake Michigan.
The Chicago Scene Boat Party is the most talked-about powerboating event of the summer in Chicago. Each year 500-1000 boats tie-up with over 10,000 attendees experiencing the incredible event. Boats of all shapes and sizes come out to the event and everyone is loaded up with people ready to have a great time.
As you can see in the photos, it’s a sight to behold.
