Ok, maybe photography isn’t really your thing, or maybe you don’t want to step that far out of the city. Regardless, you still want to get your feet wet in the outdoors.

How about kayaking on the Chicago River? Sure, it’s in the heart of the city, but you’re not doing city things. Enjoy the city from a whole different perspective as you learn how to paddle about the Second City.
