Chicago Riverwalk

Sometimes I forget how amazing every twist and turn can be in Chicago.  If you want crowds and energy, you get it.  If you want the beach, you get the beach.  A picnic in the park? We have it.

I live in Streeterville, just a few short blocks from the river.  On a low key night, my friend and I decided to take a stroll on the Chicago Riverwalk, starting at McClurg.  The river is so breathtaking at night and surprisingly, the river restaurants, as well-trafficked as they are, happen to be quiet and peaceful. It’s like all the patrons have a common goal – to slow down from the 100 mile pace of the work week and just absorb what is going on around them. A place for relaxation, a scenic dinner, romance, or just to get away from the city buzz, there are some great stops along the walk to get what you are looking for.
