In Chicago anything is possible, even taking a taxi on the river.
Can you imagine a water taxi?
Taking a ‘water taxi’ to go somewhere in the city is epic. These curious aquatic vehicles will take you from one tourist site to another in a journey with a difference and you won’t get stuck in traffic jams. There are two companies which ferry locals and tourists between different stops on the river, Water Taxi (www.chicagowatertaxi.com/SitePages/Home.aspx) or Shoreline Water Taxi (www.shorelinesightseeing.com/watertaxis). The taxis are easy to spot as they are yellow and always have people on board. We would encourage you to enjoy this different and fun experience, recommended also for its low, affordable prices, as well as for the fact that all the stops are near historical sites like museums or Michigan Avenue. A good idea whenever you go anywhere located near the river.
