Chicago Riverwalk & Chicago River Esplanade
Chicago River Esplanade..
I was under the impression that Chicago Riverwalk and Chicago River Esplanade would mean the same thing ... but was amused to find out that at least when it comes to Chicago, these terms are not interchangeable ... and are used to refer to the north and south banks of the Chicago River respectively ... By that I mean ..
Chicago Riverwalk.. refers to the walkway along the south bank of the Chicago River ... and extends from N Lake Shore Drive to Franklin Street ... As such, it runs along the lower Wacker Drive.
