While visiting we learned that much of the Riverwalk is fairly new, but found it to be a great place to stroll along the river and take in the skyline above! some nice restaurants already open and I'm sure over time more will be added.. one of my favorite parts of my trip to Chicago.

I love Chicago and this is a great, although touristic spot. Buildings all around and the river alongside, with lots of boat traffic. You can't beat this on a beautiful Chicago June day.

They are really doing a nice job of keeping the Riverwalk safe and clean. Plenty of places to just sit and relax (some areas even have nice chairs to sit and soak up the scenery). Good places to eat along the way. Musicians are often playing to add some nice music for your walk. There are some areas to grab a bit of shade if you like or stretch out and catch some rays. If you haven't walked a bit along the Riverwalk ... well you should!!

I highly recommend taking the time to do the River Walk. Fairly new addition to Chicago, a city that just keeps getting better! Lot's of bars and restaurants, and plenty of things to do. Cooler down by the river on those hot days also. Enjoy!

I visited in the winter, but it is obvious that this is a popular area in the warmer months. The architecture is beautiful.
