Why walk the crowded streets of Chicago when you can breeze down Lake Michigan in a pint-sized boat they're calling a kayak? Truth: With four locations throughout the city, Kayak Chicago will hook you up with a certified instructor to provide lessons as well as guided tours including an architectural circuit of downtown Chi, plus sunset and super-romantical night paddles. With the weather warming up, it's time to get out of your funky apartment and into a badass boat. Nature: it's great.
