$25-$20 - Saturday's at 1:00 pm
On this walking tour, guests will visit and explore some of the city’s most iconic Hotels and be taken into some of the city’s architectural wonders that no bus or boat tour could ever offer. These historical temples provide a look at the “handwriting” of Chicago’s past while capturing the era in which they were constructed. These hotels offer our guests a passage back in time as they listen to intriguing stories that peel away myth and fact.
Most visitors to Chicago are well aware of the city’s “Magnificent Mile” on Michigan Avenue north of the River but so few are aware of the amazing exposition that runs south of the River! The “Culture Mile” is ablaze right now with many new hot spots including Remington’s, the Chicago Athletic Hotel, Cindy’s, Shake Shack, 7 Lions and the newly renovated Chicago Motor Club. Add these to the abundant number of attractions (The Gage, Art Institute, Symphony Center, Fine Arts Building etc.) that are already present and you will find the “Cultural Mile” commensurate in every way with its shopping-mecca “Sister” to the north.
The tour begins at the Corner Bakery – 360 North Michigan Avenue – next to London House Hotel at 1:00 pm every Saturday January 20. The tour proceeds south down Michigan Avenue and ends at the Chicago Hilton Towers – 720 South Michigan. A minimum of 4 guests needed to launch tour.
