Did you ever wonder why Chicago is called the “Second City”? Most people believe that for decades that it was called such because Chicago was in fact second in population to New York City. However, the real reason for this moniker is because we built our city basically from ground up after the Great Chicago fire of 1871, and thus, we are the second version of this great city! If you are interested in learning more about Chicago from its early rising to its current standing as one of the world’s great cities, please join us for an entertaining and informative walking excursion along the city’s River Walk! Did Mrs. O’Leary cow really start the Great Fire? You will find the answer to that question and so many more by joining us Chicago’s Finest River Walk Brunch tour!
