The 606, also known as the Bloomingdale Trail, begins in one of Chicago’s favorite neighborhoods, Bucktown, and offers a popular and unique activity for Chicagoans of all ages! This elevated pedestrian and bike path runs through four of the city’s neighborhoods and offers breathtaking views of the city skyline and green spaces. It’s a local favorite for outdoor activities in all seasons and the beautiful display of urban public art installations.

The Chicago Riverwalk is one of Chicago’s hidden treasures and offers the opportunity to eat, drink, play, and explore Chicago! Bars, restaurants (pull your boat up to eat and drink at some of Chicago’s finest restaurants), museums, public art, pier fishing, boat trips, kayaking, bird-watching, and world-class architecture are yours to enjoy in the heart of downtown Chicago. The 1.25-mile long path includes four distinct districts; The Confluence, The Arcade, The Civic, and the Esplanade.
