With the coming of the railroad, and Illinois and Michigan canal to Chicago in 1848, the city began its unprecedented boom. Along with the growth of business came the explosion of the city's shadier side - Chicago was where the term "underworld" was coined! Thursday, Friday and Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM (and anytime for groups of 8 or more), we offer our unique take on the Nelson Algren’s “hustlertown". Kayak Chicago's beautiful river and learn about the legacy of the gangsters: from the river’s purportedly haunted spots to how Chicago’s own newspapers along with “Boardwalk Empire” characters like Johnny Torrio, Jim Colosimo and Al Capone created Chicago’s infamous violence and mayhem. On the Shady Chicago tour you will: • Kayak over the river's purportedly haunted site. • Find out the amazing connection between Al Capone and O'Hare airport. • Learn about Chicago's diminutive first crime lord, and the one who said, "There's a sucker born every minute." The Shady Chicago kayak tour is recommended for adults, and is a great tour to take at night. (offered as an evening paddle 7pm Thursday, Friday and Sunday nights and for any scheduled tour by request)
