Tall Ships in Chicago
For the Tall Ships exhibit, at least 20 of these old vessels will be coming to Navy Pier for a 6-day run. Some of them will even be taking on sailors for a cruise on Lake Michigan. All of them will be allowing visitors to board the ship and see what the insides look like. WOW!
For my part, I will be volunteering as a Line Manager for guests visiting 3 of these majestic vessels. I’m SOOO excited to be participating in this event! I can hardly wait!
Aside from the exhibit, I’m happy to say and brag that one of the boats in the exhibit – the “Windy” is a permanent, sailing Tall Ship at Navy Pier. I’ve been on her a couple of times, for a 3-4 hour voyage to the near south and near north edges of the lakefront. It was spectacular!
Here’s a link to the Tall Ships’ at Navy Pier website for more information. http://www.navypier.com/tallshipschicago/home.html
Chicago is a FABULOUS town, for SOOO many reasons! Yeah, the outlying neighborhoods are a bit rough. But the Downtown area is WONDERFUL! So much to see and do, so little time.
