Where you'll be

Travel aboard a yacht along the Chicago River through the heart of one of the world's most majestic skylines—with creepy tales around every bend. Arrive by 6:30 p.m. for boarding; the boat leaves promptly at 7 p.m. and cannot wait for latecomers. The marina is located at 800 S. Wells. You'll signs for the "boat tours" or "Summer of George" outside the (paid) parking lot. The Harrison Red Line stop is about a 10-minute walk away.
