chicago yacht rental They say that to fully appreciate the present, we must fully understand the past. We agree with this statement, and also feel that is important to be knowledgeable of your surrounding environment. Today we’d like to look into the great body of water which hugs Chicago, Lake Michigan. In addition to giving light to our business and enabling our endeavors, this lake currently as well as in the past has been a great resource to the people.

Lake Michigan is the only Great Lake located in the United States.  It’s water surface is 22,300 square miles, making it the second largest Great Lake. The area surrounding Lake Michigan were first make home to Hopewell Indians. Their culture faced a steep decline after 800 AD. After this time, the Late Woodland Indians made this region home. During European exploration in the late 17th century, Lake Michigan became an important part of a connection leading from the north to the Gulf Of Mexico. This became a very important aspect for the shipment of goods within the country. Due to it’s important place in history, the cities bordering the lake have become a tourist attraction and peak the interest of many wishing to have a better understanding of the past.

Our Chicago Yacht rentals enable those who wish to experience the lake that opportunity. Visit us online today to learn more and to book your perfect evening on the Valara VI.

Whether we like to admit it or not, working the same job over and over in the same office can become a bit draining. A break in a routine is a perfect way to boost employee morale and spice things up a bit. The Valara VI specializes in corporate cruises. Considering one may be the best idea you could have for your company, and is sure to leave your employees satisfied and smiling.

A company outing is something extra special to hold. It gives them employees a chance to connect with each other on a level  that may not be reachable within the walls of the workplace.

Another good usage for our corporate cruise options is to entertain a big client you have visiting in town. Showing a client to a good time can really turn an interaction around. Consider Adventure Sea Tours for your Chicago yacht rental needs. We’ve been in the business a while, and our goal is to ensure our customers have a night they won’t ever forget! Gather your people and enjoy a beautiful night out on the water, complete with delicious food and drinks made by our top notch bartender. Visit http://valara.com to learn more.
