Summer vacations are always fun, especially when you have fun things planned once you get to your final destination. The last thing the kids want to do is just “hang out” once you get to the place you’ve been talking about for months. I typically schedule out each day and make sure our family trips are jam-packed with lots of fun things to do! One of our favorite places to visit is Chicago. I have visited many times with and without the kids and they have all been great trips. If you have never been there, there are lots of great place to visit and fun things to do. One of my favorites is the Lakefront Fireworks Cruise. Put on by Seadog Cruises, the tours are just 30 minute cruises along the shoreline and they can be quite romantic if it’s just you and your significant other and it’s pretty exciting for the kids if you decide to take them along. Either way I highly recommend going on at least one while you’re in town. With that being said, I’m pleased to accept a free ticket in exchange for this post to my next Seadog Tour while I’m in Chicago in July.
If you are interested in going here’s a list of tours Seadog offers from the water:
Lakefront Speedboat Tour – It’s a 30-minute cruise along the shoreline offering a descriptive tour of Chicago’s famous skyline.
Extreme Thrill Ride – This cruise is perfect for the dare-devil in you! This 30-minute ride features splash down stops, 180-degree turns, slalom runs and more.
