Det skal I lave

Enjoy a tour of the architecture and tales of the historic suburbs designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, and then enjoy a tipple in the shade. For Olmstead, the great landscape architect, the natural world was his medium. Among his greatest contributions was the town of Riverside, Illinois, one of the first planned communities which still stands as a living testament to what suburbs could have been. It remains unique not just in the Chicago suburbs, but in the world. You'll stroll down Riverside's streets as you gaze upon architectural wonders and hear surprising tales of a town’s history that predates the modern city of Chicago itself. Following our walking tour, we’ll relax in true Riverside style at Quincy Street Distillery in the historic downtown district. There, we'll sip spirits crafted with the history and legacy of Riverside itself in mind.

Hi. I'm Matt, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I'm a life-long resident of the western burbs, and have always been fascinated with Olmsted's beautifully impractical vision for what they could be. I also enjoy a good sip of whiskey on occasion. This event combines those two passions.
