While millions of people visit Chicago each year, it remains a hidden gem for many. The Historic Chicago Tour will reveal the splendor, history and interesting character of this marvelous waterfront city. Known as Chicago's "front lawn," Grant Park encompasses Soldier Field and the Adler Planetarium as well as the Joseph C. Petrillo Music Shell, an amphitheater that hosts open-air summer concerts.

Highlights:

  • Grant Park - home of Soldier Field and Adler Planetarium

  • Art Institute of Chicago - world-renowned for the largest collection of impressionistic art

  • Lake Point Towers - world's highest apartment building

  • Shedd Aquarium - the world's largest aquarium

  • Field Museum of Natural History

  • South Commons

  • Jackson Park and the University of Chicago

While many have visited the beautiful waterfront city, for some, Chicago is an undiscovered treasure this sightseeing tour will uncover. Here is a tour full of interest, history, and beauty! You'll travel through Grant Park, the front lawn of the city and site of Soldier Field, Adler Planetarium with its sky dome, and the Joseph Petrillo outdoor band-shell where Chicagoans listen to fine music throughout the summer nights.

Also on your journey is the Art Institute of Chicago, world-renowned for the largest collection of impressionistic art, Orchestra Hall, home of the famous Chicago Symphony, and Shedd Aquarium, the world's largest aquarium. You'll stop by the Field Museum of Natural History, which is famous for the size and scope of its collections. And looking over from these sights you'll see the 80-story Amoco Oil Building, completely faced in white granite.

Afterwards, you will travel through the South Commons, a new "close-in" residential community. The tour will go through beautiful Jackson Park, where the Colombian Exposition of 1893 was held to celebrate the founding of America 400 years earlier. Following this you'll pass through the University of Chicago, with its elegant English style architecture, as well as pass the Museum of Science and Industry, a tribute to Man's ingenuity and inventiveness.

Finally, you'll see the world's highest apartment building, Lake Point Towers, which is an architecturally stunning building of glass and curves adjacent to Navy Pier, Chicago's inland port.
