The city of Chicago's Riverwalk is finally complete, stretching from Lake Michigan to Lake Street. Join us on a walk through this linear park, a magnet for outdoor recreation and fun that some are calling Chicago's new "coastline."

The Vietnam Memorial on the river between Wabash Ave. and State St.

We'll visit the six "rooms" or locations where you can walk, sit or eat while enjoying the view of passing boats, canoes and kayaks. Understand how the Riverwalk was built—and why.

You'll find The Vietnam War Memorial by walking down the stairs from Wacker Dr. to the river. The tour ends at the The Theater, which is between LaSalle St. and Wacker Dr. on the Chicago River level.

Note: Although it's not required, we recommend making reservations in advance for this tour.
