Best view in the city!

The best view of the city is during one of these 1.5 hour tours that go rain or shine, so we often suggest that you wait until you get to Chicago before making your reservation.  However, if you can only spend a short weekend during the summer we do suggest trying to get tickets in advance as they sell out from end of May to September.  You can buy tickets for next available or advance at the SE corner of the Chicago River and Michigan Avenue  – at river walk level.  From the Two Urns it is just a quick trip on the Blue Line to Clark/Lake and then walk 1 block north to the river and 3 blocks east to Michigan and the ticket booth.

Chicago Dining Cruises is offering 10% off by mentioning “VISITCHI” (some restrictions apply) when you make your reservation for a Lunch or Dinner Cruise on the Spirit of Chicago, Odyssey or Mystic Blue cruises.  Call 866-933-9926; stop by a ticket booth at Navy Pier or book online: or .
