Thursday night we look forward to hosting an evening Dinner Cruise with a first-class Chicago Architecture Tour accompaniment.
Guests will be treated to the stunning Chicago skyline onboard the superb Anita Dee II. For over 31 years, Anita Dee Yacht Charters have specialized in offering exquisite events aboard this exclusive luxury yacht venue.
Chicago architecture is world famous and there’s no better, or more enjoyable, way to see the stunning skyscrapers than from the water. Chicago Architecture Foundation certified tour guides—called docents— will interpret the magnificent buildings along the Chicago shoreline. You’ll find out how Chicago grew from a small settlement into one of the world’s largest cities in less than 100 years.
Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served onboard to begin the evening, followed by a fully catered meal with refreshments.
