Það sem verður gert

We'll meet in a popular sheltered spot to discuss the tour and begin our way trekking through Chicago. I'll guide us through the underground Pedway system that is known to only a percentage of Chicagoans (we have 5 miles of Pedway!). We'll learn about the history of The Windy City (as well as why we're REALLY called The Windy City) while popping outside to see some of our city's most prominent sights. Using some of the Loop's buildings, hallways and overhangs, we'll get rare, unique views and traverse the city like a local while staying warm and dry. For an additional perspective, we'll jump into some buildings to admire the architecture and art. If you're curious about Prohibition era ganster lore and our speakeasy past, we can cover that too. Be prepared for indoor and outdoor walking as some of our walks and views will take us outside, especially if the weather is pleasant. Layers are recommended during the colder/rainier months. Please let me know if you have any allergies or food sensitivities, as we’ll be stopping for an authentic Chicago snack that's been around for decades. Whether you're a local or this is your first visit, I promise to pack lots of interesting tidbits into our 2 hours together!

Frekari upplýsingar um Kelly

Kelly

I'm Kelly (a.k.a. ChiCitiGirl), a mapgeek, history enthusiast, architecture admirerer and food fanatic. I'm a trained city guide (5star tours!) and I've been doing excursions for friends & family for decades. The Windy City has been my home for 25+ years and I know how to get around to experience the best sights and bites. Working in the food and beverage industry for 10+ years has given me added insight into some of Chicago's hottest spots. I'm also a Chicago Artictecture Center Open House volunteer and Chicago History Museum member, using their library to research Chicago as well as the history of the 125+ year Victorian building I call home. I've traveled the world doing walking tours and know from personal experience how to make the best of our time together. I try to make a new friend every day, come play with me!

Fleiri ábendingar

This tour is fabulous year-round but if you're visiting Chicago in the colder months or here on a rainy day, THIS is the tour for you as Mother Nature won't stop us! For kids, I'm prepared to make the tour interesting with quizzes/prizes! If you'd like a diffent day/time, send me a message request.
