A fun family event coming once again to Chicago. If you haven’t heard . . . the tall ships are returning.
At Navy Pier you can enjoy these spectacular boats at the Taste of Tall Ships, August 11-14, from 10 am to 9 pm most days. That page will take you to info on each of the ships and some of the scheduled events. Some are just for looking at and some you can get on, and some you can enjoy a ride on.
You can board the Pride of Baltimore II & Flagship Niagara.
Adult Boarding $9
Child Boarding $6
Group rates available as well if you get a group of 20 or more. That will knock a buck of each pass.
While on the subject of tall ships . . .
Today Groupon has a special deal as well for a ride on Chicago’s own tall ship, Windy. THE GROUPON IS NOT VALID DURING TASTE OF TALL SHIPS. But, you can enjoy this ride some other day and avoid the crowds of the tall ships. Or, you can do a unit on tall ships and start and end it with two different tall ship events.
