Spent about 4 hours touring Chicago neighborhoods we probably otherwise would not have found. Liz, our guide, did a great job. Pace was just right.

The tour was full of scenic Chicago views along with truly amazing food. I would recommend to anyone wanting to visit Chicago for the first time on this tour. Our guide, Evan, was such an upbeat, happy guy that he just made the tour that much better.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
