City on the Lake

Remember that Chicago is a seaport city - it's on the shore of one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world, Lake Michigan. The Riverwalk is the place where city residents, and visitors, can come to enjoy the beauty of where the urban experience meets the water. Come and enjoy!

The Chicago Riverwalk is actually a series of special places where you can stroll from downtown Chicago to the beauty of Lake Michigan. Go to the Marina, with its restaurants and public seating, to The Cove, the Swimming Hole (with fishing and floating gardens), the River Theater, the Jetty and the Boardwalk. Enjoy every aspect of Chicago and the lake; you'll discover a new part of the city.
