Cruzeiro no rio com arquitetura costeira

Architecture River Cruise de Chicago

A queda é um dos melhores momentos para ir na famosa Architecture River Cruise em Chicago

Se você ama o ar livre e não se cansa do clima mais frio, então um passeio de barco ou passeio é uma idéia inteligente. Tente um agora antes que o tempo fique muito frio!

One of the best cruises to take down the Chicago River is the Architecture River Cruise. Glide past the uniquely designed buildings and structures that line the coast and learn more about why Chicago is considered a hub of architectural advancement.

There are gorgeous sights to see at any time of year, but the view is extra nice when the foliage is turning from green to yellows and reds.

Insider tip: Be sure to wear at least a medium-weight jacket and bring a scarf and gloves with you, as you’ll find the temperature on the water is a bit cooler than it is on land.

 You don’t have to go far outside of the city to suddenly find yourself on a farm or orchard. Just head an hour outside of the city and you’ll find lots of pumpkin patches, apple orchards, hay rides, corn mazes, and more. Here are some of the most popular:
  • Prairie Sky Orchard: 60 miles northwest of the city, this expansive farm offers 15 different varieties of apples and Asian pears. Expect to walk away with at least 1lb of fresh-picked apples and a delicious coffee or cinnamon donut from the Koffee Kiosk.
  • Honey Hill Orchard: located not too far from Shabbona Lake State Park, this orchard is the perfect excuse for a day trip full of outdoor fun. Aside from picking dozens of apples, Honey Hill also boasts a petting farm, hay rides, and a hay bale maze.
  • Ziegler’s Orchard: though this orchard is only open on weekends, it’s definitely worth getting to if you have the time in your schedule. The trees are small enough for kids to grab their own apples from the branches and the pastries from the bakery are some of the best around.

There are tons of other Chicago-area apple orchards and pumpkin patches as well, but these are the ones the locals consider to the best around.

Getting in: apple orchard excursions are separately ticketed and are not included on Go Chicago Card.
