October 2013

The fall season offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities in ideal temperatures before the winter chill arrives. Chicago has a variety of activities to choose from, no matter what interests you may have. Museum exhibits, Chicago cruises, new restaurant openings, and Halloween events are just a few things to look forward to this season.

As the leaves continue to change color, some of the things that may come to mind are pumpkin spice lattes or apple picking at area orchards. While you can certainly find these fall staples in Chicago, you can also look forward to so much more.

Here are two events to enjoy with your loved ones and friends during the month of November:

  1. Beer Hoptacular: Partake in Chicago’s craft beer from November 8-9 as a part of the Fourth Annual Beer Hoptacular. This event takes place at┬áLacuna Artist Loft Studios in Pilsen. Tickets are still on sale and can be purchased at the official Beer Hoptacular website. Just remember to assign a designated driver!
  2. Christmas Tree Lighting: The 100th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony takes place at Daley Plaza on November 27th with live performances and music. What better way to get ready for winter! Learn more here.


October is here! That means Halloween is right around the corner. What are your plans for the festive day? Plan a costume party aboard a Chicago boat cruise! A night aboard one of Adventure Sea Tours’ yacht rentals can be filled with various activities and moments to remember.

Celebrate on board the Valara VI with up to 149 of your friends. There are so many possibilities to create a fun night for all attendees. The most exciting part of Halloween is looking at all of the creative costumes, so why not start the event off with a costume contest? Prizes can be simple as well. Candy treat bags are ideal for younger children and prize ribbons are a favorite for adults. Gift cards to various stores are also a hit to include with those prize ribbons or award certificates.

Another fun activity to host on your Chicago boat cruise for Halloween is a crime lab for adults. Create crazy cocktail concoctions, perform silly science experiments, or mix-and-match appetizer formulas. Your guests are sure to have a blast with various activities on board, and enjoy more than enough room to interact and chat with your fellow friends. Give us a call to discuss your next event.
