Other cities have walking tours but Chicago takes tours of the city to a new level with the ‘Along the Magnificent Mile’ day and night tour that takes in many of the famous sights and lets you see them by day and night. It’s not all walking and you may need taxis or public transport to get to some aspects and there’s a stop for lunch but having done the tour, you’ll have a great idea of what Chicago is about.
Chicago is famous for its architecture and all the more so for being where world renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright cut his teeth with over a hundred buildings of the so called ‘Prairie School’ design constructed there.
Other architects stepped into his shoes and made Chicago the front runner in the development of architectural styles with the idea of the skyscraper being born there too, the first in the country being built in the area known as ‘The Loop’.
