Chicagoans are very familiar with the Riverwalk and if you are not, you are missing out on lots of great scenery of the windy city. Since I travel by train, I get there by walking from the Blue Line Clark and Lake stop. I walk towards Dearborn St. and go north for one block.
During the day there is plenty of activity, but at night you can find some serenity. I decided to capture my journey on the River walk at 3am, I knew this would be ideal to get some interesting views of the city and it paid off nicely.
