The Great Chicago Fire
In 1871, a massive blaze broke out and spread throughout Chicago. It burned for over two days and destroyed a large part of the city. Despite this tragedy, Chicago rebuilt from the trauma and now stands as one of the most famous cities in the world. When you tour your lakefront architecture cruise, you’ll learn all about this tragic event in history and see some of the areas that were touched by the blazing fire. But most amazingly, how the Second City showed resilience with hope.
Aptly named, Queen’s Landing is the spot in Chicago where Queen Elizabeth II disembarked in 1959. This concrete pier offers outstanding views of the city and harbor. From the water, Queen’s Landing sits alongside Chicago’s famous skyline for a historical and unforgettable view that lovers of history, beauty, and architecture alike will enjoy.
Buckingham Fountain is one of Chicago’s most interesting and famous landmarks. It was built in 1927 and remains one of the largest fountains in the world. This beautiful and historical sight shoots water an astounding 150 feet in the air. You can enjoy the beautiful light show from your lakefront architecture cruise if you plan the stops right. The fountain is incredibly intricate and sits in front of towering buildings along Chicago’s skyline, creating a stunning and unique view at the center of Grant Park. From nature lovers to art lovers, this view has something for everyone.
While the Navy Pier was once home to draft dodging prisoners during World War I, it is now one of Chicago’s most famous and iconic landmarks. The massive and beautiful Ferris wheel rises up 150-feet high and the view from the lakefront architecture cruise in Chicago is simply stunning. The twinkly lights and excited crowds, backdrop of tall buildings, and incredibly structured pier as a whole are all must-sees for visitors of this great city. From Adeline’s Sea Moose, you’ll get an incredibly unique vantage point, skip the lines, get background information, and snap pictures without interference from strangers.
