AMRPA Chicago River Architectural Discounted Group Tour

Spouses/personal companions are welcome to register and attend AMRPA receptions. In addition, AMRPA organized a discounted Chicago architectural river tour for spouses/personal companions interested in exploring the city on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.

Named one of the top ten tours in the country by TripAdvisor, the relaxing 90-minute Chicago River tour features indoor and outdoor seating, a full service bar abroad each vessel, and is consistently recognized by locals and visitors alike as the best way to see Chicago. Docents provide commentary on over 50 buildings along the Chicago River and discuss how Chicago grew up along the lake into one of the largest cities in the world.

This is intended for spouses/personal companions only, not additional company representatives. If a spouse/personal companion wishes to attend any conference programming or educational sessions, they must register as a full conference participant.
