Chicago is a great walking city but sometimes time and other issues call for a driving tour. We can cover a lot in a couple of hours primarily along the Lake Michigan East side Lake Shore Drive. Sit back and enjoy an overview of Chicago. We will begin in the loop (business district) near the birthplace of the City where the River meets Lake Michigan. We will then trace the history of the city to the south side Hyde Park site of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Proceeding north along the Lake Front will take us to the Museum campus with its breathtaking view of the city and continue north to the 1200 acre Lincoln Park. Our trip will span much of the 18 mile long Lake Shore Drive along beautiful Lake Michigan. Several stops, including the Museum Campus, will allow opportunities for brief walks and discussions of Chicago's history, beauty, art, architecture and culture. The maximum number for this tour is 4 - but 3 is most comfortable. I offer a different van tour for up to 6.
