Now Chicago area residents and visitors explore the city's culture on a walk along the Chicago River. Bagpipers welcomed guests Saturday at this year's Riverwalk, which is along the river between Lake Shore Drive and Franklin Street.

People can go to eat at cafes, ride water taxis and tour art exhibits.

Over the summer, the city will also begin construction on expanded river walkways beneath the Michigan Avenue and Wabash bridges to accommodate visitors.
