KAON '99 Excursions

The afternoon/evening Wednesday excursions will begin with a guided walking tour of the University of Chicago's Hyde Park campus. The tour will be followed by Chicago from the Lake's popular architectural Chicago River cruise, a 90-minute narrated tour that spotlights more than 40 historic and architecturally significant sites and offers sparkling river vistas of Chicago's loop.

If the cruise is not scheduled to capacity, a few additional tickets may become available at a cost of $15 each.

After the tour, motor coaches will take us to nearby Navy Pier, Chicago's festive renovated landmark with 50 acres of parks, gardens, shops, restaurants, and attractions of every kind--- including a Ferris wheel and carousel and the six-story Navy Pier IMAX theatre. You'll have time to browse, dine, and be entertained on your own before returning by chartered motor coach to your lodgings.
