One of the best parts about Chicago is its water front. From Oak Street Beach, to the party up at Castaways, and even the calming breeze at Montrose Harbor, the beach is where it's at. It can be found from many front door steps in Chicago. In fact many PPM buildings are located within walking distance from one of these amazing Chicago beachfronts. So, we not only have some fantastic beaches, we also have many other waterfront activities, including wave runners, kayaking, and a walk down Navy Pier.
But what makes having Lake Michigan so close to your apartment so great? Well, how about the amazing boats and cruises you can hop on and enjoy during a sunny afternoon or a chill night out? Whatever your reason is, Chicago cruises are a must-try stop for any tourist or Chicagoan. When it comes to nightlife, however, you will be hard pressed to find a shortage of booze cruises. Here at PPM we break down the 5 best cruises to enjoy the night, each with great drinks and great views.
