In January of 2011 the Drake Hotel was named to Travel and Leisure’s annual list of the 500 greatest hotels and resorts in the world. But as we’ve said before, we cannot take all the credit for our accolades. The many facets of this great city is what makes The Drake a destination for our friends from around the world. One of the most real aspects of Chicago’s intrigue is the incredible skyline that runs along Lake Michigan’s shoreline. It doesn’t whether you’re driving southbound towards the city on Lake Shore Drive, northbound from the city’s suburbs, or docking your sailboat along the harbor, there’s no doubt that morning, afternoon, or night you’ll be amazed by this skyline, coincidently rated by Travel and Leisure “the best skyline in America.”
Whereas viewing the skyline while driving or flying into the city is a treat in itself, it can be appreciated so much more with a glass of vino and some good company aboard one of Entertainment Cruises four cruise liners, setting sail daily from Navy Pier. The Odyssey, Spirit of Chicago, Mystic Blue and Seadog cruises all offer different atmospheres aboard, but the same jaw dropping backdrop you must see to believe.
We took our Real Chicago correspondent on a 15 minute walk from The Drake to Navy Pier and welcomed her aboard the Spirit of Chicago courtesy of Entertainment Cruises.
