Chicago City Tours: A Wonderful Introduction To The Second City

If  you are embarking on an extended stay in Chicago, you probably want to spend time enjoying the city and not just commuting from your corporate housing to work and back. There is so much to see in this city, and we’ll admit, it can be hard to figure out where and what you’d like to do first.

An easy way to start your discovery of Chicago is to take a neighborhood tour. Explore Chicago offers 24 unique tours of 43 different Chicago neighborhoods. There is a wide variety of tours from Bronzville, South Loop and IIT Campus Tour to a tour dedicated to the Church architecture along Michigan Ave. Each tour details the history, socioeconomic and favorite / famous places of the specific neighborhoods you’re visiting. Tours are given on foot or by motor coach and cost $30 for an adult ticket. The Taste Of Neighborhoods Tour, is $50 for an adult ticket as you see more than just three neighborhoods and are brought to two unique Chicago restaurants and a dessert shop.

This truly is a great way to get away from the normal tourist attractions of the Magnificent Mile and museums. You’ll get a great feel of what neighborhoods hold the activities you enjoy most. From food, to antique hunting you’re sure to find a side of Chicago you’ll enjoy for your entire stay.
