New, 1 comment

The Chicago Riverwalk, the Windy City's popular pedestrian waterfront, will get a nine-block extension by 2016 and the first two blocks of the $100M project just made its grand debut over the Memorial Day weekend. Visitors who flocked to the Chicago Riverwalk this past weekend were not only the first to see the completed extension of the riverfront walkway in person, but were also the first to share images of it on social media. And while the weather may not be exactly cooperating today, the Chicago Riverwalk's new extension had picture perfect weather for its big debut. Here's a look at a few Instagram images taken by Chicagoans and tourists of the new attraction.
