What Sights Will You See?
We are proud of our history here in Chicago. Despite the loss of some 17,500 buildings during the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, a group of resilient builders and designers began the process of rebuilding Chicago into the impressive masterpiece of architecture that we see today.
Even when faced with the setback of the second fire of 1874, the persistent people of Chicago did not give up. Because of their determination and hard work, we can enjoy and appreciate magnificent examples of architecture along the river. In addition to the buildings that make Chicago known to all, you will enjoy seeing lovely residential buildings and historic bridges on our architecture yacht tour.
While relaxing in comfort in the air conditioning or comfortably lounging on our yachts’ observation decks and enjoying a refreshing breeze, you will have the opportunity to appreciate some of Chicago’s world-renowned buildings. Some of the many well-known buildings along the Chicago River include the following:
- The Wrigley Building
- The John Hancock Center
- The Willis Tower
- The Merchandise Mart, now known as the MART
- The Tribune Tower
Our architecture yacht tours involve more than just looking at buildings. They provide you and your guests the opportunity to learn about Chicago’s history while absorbing the designs and vision of the architects and engineers who made Chicago the city we know and love. You will be able to reflect on the Wrigley Building, which was first partially opened back in 1921. This impressive building, which according to its website, was constructed with “more than 250,000 glazed terra-cotta tiles produced by the Northwestern Terra Cotta Company” has massive towers joined by raised walkways.
You can also marvel at the exposed trusses and slanting lines of the John Hancock Building. Up to 1996, the Willis Tower, formerly the Sears Tower, was the world’s tallest building. Wrap your mind around the impressive 4.2 million square feet of theMART, which is as large as two city blocks. The Tribune Tower began with an international contest for the design of a new building in 1922. From this colorful beginning now stands a 36-story gothic masterpiece. These are but a few of the many buildings you can see in the fantastic views available onboard our beautiful yachts.
