Freeport Arts Center Chicago trip includes river tour, museum

FREEPORT—Freeport Arts Center (FAC) is offering a bus trip to the Chicago Architectural Society River Tour Sept. 13.

Marvel at Chicago’s soaring towers while enjoying a 90-minute narrated Chicago river cruise. This tour spotlights architecturally significant sites where one will discover a new perspective on the city.

Each vessel has both open-air and climate-controlled seating to make the journey comfortable.

Prior to the boat tour, everyone on the bus trip will visit Chicago’s newest museum, the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum. Built at a cost of more than $10 million, the museum relies on exhibit techniques, including much interactive technology, to focus on First Amendment rights.

Lunch will be on your own.
