Newest Portion of Chicago's Riverwalk Now Open

Locals and tourist have a new way to enjoy the Chicago river and surrounding architecture. With the newest segment of the Chicago Riverwalk opening Memorial Weekend, pedestrians can now navigate the river between State Street and Clark Street.  Soon, a variety of vendors will set up shop, including dining opportunities, shopping, and kayak rentals.  Check out this interactive map for more information.

I stopped by the river walk to see what all the excitement was about.  Here are some photos I captured.
