Det skal I lave

The tour begins at the Chicago Water Tower, one of the few structures spared from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. You will hear about the fire’s impact on city planning.
We will walk past the Playboy Building, crowned by the Lindbergh Beacon, the Drake Hotel, and Oak Street Beach. We will then walk north along Rush Street, home to many of Chicago’s iconic restaurants. We will continue up North State Parkway through the Gold Coast, past the original Playboy Mansion and some of Chicago’s beautiful Gold Coast mansions. We will also see architect Bertrand Goldberg’s Astor Tower. We’ll walk west on North Avenue, the original northern boundary of Chicago, past the
southernmost portion of Lincoln Park, a former cemetery.
At Wells Street we will turn southward past Piper’s Alley. The mall is home to the Second City comedy club, where comedians of the likes of Bill Murray and Tina Fey started
their careers. Down Wells Street we will take in the heart of Old Town, home to many of Chicago’s Victorian-era buildings. During the 1960s, Old Town was home to Chicago’s counter-culture communities. Our walking tour will end at La Fournette, a traditional, authentic French bakery, for coffee and dessert. We can chat and enjoy our snacks at the cul-de-sac and pocket park at North
Wells and West Burton, near the Carl Street Studios, an art enclave nestled in the city. *This is not a circle tour*

I’ve got a story for every corner of this city. Want to hear 'em? The best way to experience Chicago is with a local, to guide you through the city’s culture & history and learn about its impact on the world. When you grow up in Chicago, you likely grow up in its many neighborhoods, exploring the urban environs of this world-class city. I grew up on the far south side and currently reside on the Gold Coast. I spent time in Bridgeport, went to high school in Hyde Park, worked in Uptown and the Loop, and volunteer in River North. I have a background in political science and law, but my identity reflects my eclectic upbringing in Chicago. Let's begin our journey: "When you grow up in Chicago, and it's all you know, it grows in your heart and remains there forever - the yardstick against which the rest of the world is measured."

Her skal du være

Our walking tour begins in Chicago's Magnificent Mile neighborhood at the Water Tower and takes us through the neighborhoods of the Gold Coast and Old Town. This is not a circle tour.
