Forget stuffy museums and get lost in the beauty of Chicago's urban jungle on this Off the Grid walking tour. It showcases unique aspects of the city's history as well as some of its hottest spots and hardest-to-find gems. You'll visit places that are difficult to find without a local to guide you and point out significant places you might otherwise pass right by.
At the start of the tour, you’ll discover where the legendary Chicago-style pizza was born. From there, we’ll head deeper into the River North neighbourhood where I’ll show you buildings from Chicago's growth period after the Great Fire of 1871. (You’ll hear one of Chicago's most heart-breaking tragedies, and why several buildings around the city are haunted because of it.) Then you’ll get the lowdown on trendy spots you might want to visit again and again in this ultra-stylish, ultra-urban district of art galleries, boutique shops, restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses, trendy bars and clubs.
River North is the go-to area for design-lovers, and it's packed with history-defining buildings and stunning architecture. Come with me and uncover the local treasures of Chicago!
