Popular Entertainment of Chicago


Where were Electric Blues and Ragtime invented? Where did the man who started the Grand Ole Opry build his first "Radio Barn Dance?" Where was the first Nixon/Kennedy Debate? Where were "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" filmed? You guessed it; Chicago. So much of popular entertainment past and present is Chicago. Whatever art you love, I bet we can find something about it here.

This tour is also available as an all-day affair.

We will go all over the place in pursuit of the scores of Chicago's cultural milestones. This will primarily focus on the Loop, but we will dart off a bit into the other sides of the City.

Transportation

We'll be zipping aound in my car, which comfortably seats 3 in addition to myself. I can also meet you and your vehicle.
