We recently went on a $10 ($5 each) one-way water taxi ride to Chinatown from downtown. We actually didn't know there was such a, basically, dirt cheap water taxi before finding out that day. It was gorgeous that day too. I felt really lucky to be on the water for the first time. Oh, and to all in Chicago, I'd like to let you know that it smelled fine.
I saw some amazing sunset views of some buildings I have never noticed before. The vines on that building is my favorite. I've always loved any building that is being taken over by vines. The way the clouds looked that evening, and the sun starting to slightly set, only added to all these new views.
Talk about detail on the Civic Opera Building!
I'm looking forward to riding it again! Chicago's Chinatown isn't too exciting (not anything that I have found. Please share if you do know of some fun there!), but eating food and drinking sake is always fun. So that's what we ended up doing. We took the Red line home and were glowing from our last minute fun adventure. I've been recommending it to everyone!
