I've been taking lessons with this company for over a year now. What I appreciate most is that it's a practical learning experience and you can be as intense or passive with how much or how quickly you learn. Not only have I learned how to sail, I've met some great people, as many are regulars. The view of Chicago... More

If you love air shows or fireworks like I do ...there is nothing like the experience you get when out on the water. My fiancee and I decided this is the year to go sailing and see the show ...and we are glad we did. Just the two of us, we shared the boat with another couple and a gentleman... More

For the adventurous Chicago visitor, sailing along the gorgeous Chicago skyline is a can't-miss experience. 3rd Coast sailing instructors take extra care of novice-beginning sailors thru expert senior-mates, teaching practical, hands-on sailing basics and advanced techniques. Sailing crew-mates also doubled as great new friends!

When I really enjoy something I like to pass on the info to others. I recently took sailing lessons from 3rd coast cruising in chicago, and learned so much! I thought it might be difficult but the class was taught right on the boat, and I was sailing the 1st day! The instructors were very knowledgable and easy going. I... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
