Now one of the world’s foremost cities, Chicago, built out of swampland 200 years ago, certainly didn’t begin that way. Meet your guide at 1:00pm at the Hyatt Regency and set off on a 2.5-hour walking tour, designed to familiarize you with the city’s surprising and fascinating history. As you go, you’ll spot some of downtown’s quintessential landmarks — and enjoy an intermission and snack break halfway through, too.
Much of your exploring will take place via Chicago’s Pedway, a five-mile network of tunnels, building concourses, and underground paths designed to help shield residents from the harsh winter weather. The Pedway also happens to connect many of the city’s famous landmarks, which makes for optimal indoor exploration.
You’ll be navigating more than a mile of this unique urban terrain. See the Chicago Cultural Center (and its famous Tiffany Dome), visit the Daley Center, admire the lobby of City Hall and take in the sights of the James R. Thompson Center. As you go, you’ll hear stories about everything from the city’s early founders to the Great Chicago Fire and the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.
By the time the tour ends, you’ll be well-versed in Chicago history and lore.
