While riding the red tour, don’t forget to explore Chicago’s finest shopping district, the Magnificent Mile. The Magnificent Mile features a variety of high end stores, including everything from Burberry and Apple to Harley Davidson and Lush. Get all dolled up for a tea time and treat the doll lover in your life with a visit to the American Girl Store at Water Tower Place.


The Museum of Science and Industry and more!

Get a taste for Chicago’s south side with stops at the Museum of Science and Industry as well as Chicago’s historic Chinatown neighborhood. Chinatown offers many amenities, including a variety of Asian boutiques and cuisine.



Grabbing lunch in Chinatown makes for a great “build up” to visiting Brick by Brick, the Lego exhibition currently on display at the Museum of Science and Industry through September 4th.


Sporty, Wild, and Fashionable: The Wrigleyville/Lincoln Park Zoo Tour

Step up your game by taking a trip to Chicago’s north side. Chicago Trolley is an amazing way to see your favorite Chicago sites before escorting you to historic Wrigley Field to catch the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs in action.


The Chicago History Museum is a fashionable destination this summer in more ways than one. Making Mainbocher is a large scale exhibition honoring the late Vogue editor and west side Chicago designer for his innovative contributions to the fashion industry. And of course, if fashion isn’t your thing take a detour to lounge with the lions at the Lincoln Park Zoo, a free and family-friendly destination suitable for all ages.


I Like the Night Life, Baby: The Return of Night Time Tours

Discover the Chicago skyline at night with the return of our summer night time tours! Grab dinner at a Chicago staple, like the Hard Rock Cafe, Navy Pier, or the Signature Lounge on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Center. The famous Willis Tower Skydeck offers sightseers a view second to none and offering viewers a glimpse into neighboring states including Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. Whether you visit at twilight or sunset, ride among the skyscrapers while admiring a breathtaking view of the windy city.
