Mine Chicago’s Architectural Gems or start a pavement-jungle safari with the Urban Sculpture tour and a tasteful pair of high-powered binoculars. Each audio tour, normally $7.95, is split into tracks that coincide with a downloadable, printable map, so sightseers can take the tour on their own terms. Discover historic architecture, famous artistic landmarks, verdant parks, and more. Like so many past explorers, acquaint eyes with the Windy City’s aesthetic pleasures, discover new perspectives in The Bean, or plant a crest-bearing flag on a giant tooth you just discovered.
