Valpo Parks Day Trip to Chicago for Architectural Boat Tour

The Valparaiso Parks Department is planning a day trip to Chicago for an Architectural Boat Tour. The 90-minute cruise glides along all three branches of the Chicago River with a certified docent interpreting over fifty of the city’s world renowned buildings. “This is one of our most popular trips. You see Chicago from a completely different perspective on this cruise,” said Jane Grennes of the Valparaiso Parks Department, adding that a second bus has been added this year.

This trip on Thursday, August 8, is $99 per person which includes cruise ticket, box lunch and motorcoach transportation to and from Chicago. To reserve, call Valparaiso Parks Dept at 219-462-5144. For more information, call the Valparaiso Parks office or visit online at
