Uptown, Argyle St. & Andersonville
Already been to the Sears Tower? Tried deep dish pizza and Chicago style hotdogs? That's all good, but now it's time to get off the beaten path and hop on the "el" and check out one of Chicago's 77 diverse and interesting neighborhoods and see how the locals live. On this tour, we will see the highlights of Downtown Chicago which includes amazing history, architecture & art. Then we'll jump on the 'el' and explore Uptown, Argyle St. & Andersonville, originally Swedish, now a very eclectic & diverse neighborhood. Are you ready for an urban adventure?

Approximately 2+ mile walk. Please be prepared and dress accordingly. Tours will take place regardless of the weather. Depending on the season I would suggest layers and possibly an umbrella.
