Mother Nature In The Concrete Jungle

Chicago is home to the Chicago River, which parts the magnificent sky scrapers that occupy downtown Chicago.  How lucky are residents of Catalyst Apartments to live so close to an ecological community that is right in the middle of one of the largest cities in the country?  The harboring assortments of wildlife includes mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. The Chicago River offers the gift of mother nature to a concrete jungle.

If you feel like exploring the river itself, there are multiple ways to do so.  Hop on over to Urban Kayak to get your paddle on and enjoy a guided tour of the river.  Skip the street taxi and use the Chicago Water Taxi to travel to your destination.  The Chicago Water Taxi makes several stops including Ogilvie/Union Train Station and Chinatown.  Learn about famous Chicago architecture during a tour on a Chicago First Lady open-air cruise.

If you would like to just take in the view of the Chicago River from either side, there are loads of options.  Take yourself to the Caribbean at the Island Party Hut. There, you can listen to island music and savor a cool drink.  Cruise along the waterfront with Bike and Roll Chicago.  Rent a bike and ride along side the river.  If you work up an appetite, order from the spring menu at Bridge House Tavern while sitting right next to the glistening water.
