Tour Chicago Like a Local

  • Our Chicago Essentials Bus Tour begins at Rock N Roll McDonald’s – east entrance: 600 North Clark Street
  • It has been suggested that if you take a portrait of America and subtract what Chicago has contributed to it, you would not recognize what you have left! For example, what would America look like without some of just a few of its many contributions, like: Skyscrapers, McDonald’s, cell phones, soap operas, atomic energy, or most importantly Twinkies!
  • Culturally, Chicago is in a league of its own with its 561 cultural institutions including world-class museums, symphony, the Opera Company, and countless theaters. America has given the arts world four major original contributions: Blues, Jazz, skyscrapers, and prairie-style architecture. Chicago provided three out of four of these contributions.
  • In order to truly understand the depth and breadth of Chicago we need to explore the city beyond the typical tourist destinations. While these areas add considerably to Chicago’s appeal, there is so much more to learn about and experience what is essential to understanding this great city.
