We took a lakefront segway tour on a sunny day and had a great time getting to know the city, the architecture and all the crazy facts in between. It started with half an hour of instructions and how-to's and because we were a small group (8-10, is that considered a small group?) we were also instructed individually. The segway takes a few minutes of getting used to but in the end it is really enjoyable.
We started by the river-walk (learned a lot about the architecture) and worked our way to the lakefront from where we made our way to the Field Museum. From that point, we were able to get pictures of Chicago's amazing cityscape. We had our lunch break there too, sampling the famous Chicago chardog from a cart.
Other spots we passed were the Buckingham Fountain, Grant Park and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Our guide (I think his name was AJ) made the tour interesting with his good knowledge of Chicago history and funny comments about Chicago life (like buying retarded ducks for the Windy City Duck Race. He didn't mention that rubber ducks were used so you can imagine the horror in my face when he said that all of his ducks would just sink.)
