Clasping the Chicago River’s south side along Wacker Dr, this 1.25-mile-long promenade is slowly being developed as a local hangout. Access it from the stairs at any bridge. Outdoor cafes, wine bars, fountains, and bike and kayak rental shops dot the way.

There's also a Vietnam veteran’s memorial (near N Wabash Ave), a small river history museum (at N Michigan Ave) and sightseeing boats sprinkled in. It's a fine spot to escape the crowds and watch boats glide by.
