    Take in the gorgeous scenery and really take a few minutes or hours to appreciate the incredible architecture that creates the city and molds it into a wonderful place to live and visit.

    This is a great way for people who live downtown or in the West Loop to get to the lakefront path and run without having to stop at all the lights. It's kinda pretty too!

    There are excellent views of the city. Though you can take your bike here, it is usually too busy and narrow to get comfortable.

    Walk along the river on the pedestrian pathway and wave to the tour boats going by, while the cars whiz above. (I recommend taking a sunset tour too, if you have a chance!)

    Great views of the city! It's also pretty secluded from the heavy foot traffic so it's a great way to commute if you want to avoid the crowds.
