Get a "taste" of the real Chicago with this in depth guided bus tour of the Windy City's most popular and historic sights. You'll get glimpses into what's referred to as the "North Side" and the "South Side" two very distinct areas. You'll see the world-famous Loop
area, home of Chicago's business district and one of the tallest buildings in the world (Willis Tower
) plus you'll roll down the famous State Street - "that great street”, aptly named by Frank Sinatra - a shopping and tourist mecca. The city's beautiful lakefront which resembles the ocean during warm weather months and an ice rink during the coldest winter months. Check out Millennium Park
, Grant Park
, and the Museum Campus
- home to the Field Museum, the Art Institute, the Shedd Aquarium
, Adler Planetarium
and for you sports fans, let's not forget Soldier's Field
home of the Da Bears!
An often unseen part of the city is the South Side - you'll travel along scenic Lake Shore Drive past Burnham Harbour and Hyde Park's famous Midway Plaisance (French for "pleasant") which now houses the University of Chicago and other historic buildings - this area was the site of the World Columbian Exposition in 1893. The tour will make stops along the way so you can take in the views and snap some pics. After the tour, you'll be ready to enjoy some real Chicago-style pizza at one of the most popular pizza restaurants in downtown Chicago. The perfect topping to your Windy City tour!
