Ever wondered what Chicagoans thought about their daily commute? Here’s some of the things they had to say Friday, July 13.
When you think about transportation in Chicago, you may not think about water taxis right away. But you might be surprised how many options you have to navigate the Windy City and to do it traffic-free and with a view you can’t get anywhere else.
Where you can go on a Chicago water taxi!
Chicago Water Taxi operates the purple route, while Shoreline SightSeeing operates the three remaining lines.

Have you ever wondered exactly how your air conditioner came to be? Probably not, but you have a doctor treating malaria and yellow fever patients in Florida in the 1800s and a dying president a few decades later to thank for this invaluable summer device.
