Chicago Architecture Walking Tour: Debunking Architecture Myths & Urban Legends

Chicago Architecture Walking Tour: Debunking Architecture Myths & Urban Legends

If you’ve taken any tour in Chicago, you’ve likely heard some common urban myths masked in “truth” because the tour guide supposedly knows best. But most tours are basically regurgitated scripts that perpetuate these myths -- and then the guests who take those tours spread those myths to their local friends, and the myths become “truth”…but they’re not true. On this all-outdoors tour, we tell some of the most commonly told urban myths in a fun “Two Truths & a Lie” format, where you’ll be given the TRUTH behind each myth told on so many tours, and we’ll add a few more truths to that. Did Al Capone really operate a speakeasy in the Jewelers’ Building? Was the Carbide & Carbon Building modeled after a champagne bottle in order for the architects to thumb their noses at Prohibition? Is the Civic Opera Building meant to represent a “throne” facing away from New York? Come join us on a debunking mission through downtown Chicago and its riverfront, with gorgeous views along the way!

Chicago Walking PLUS

Chicago Walking PLUS "L" Train Tour: Explore River North & Chinatown in 2 hours!

Chicago's famous "L" train connects many of Chicago's best neighborhoods. We've chosen two neighborhoods known for their foods, shopping, and rich history — River North and Chinatown — and are excited to show you a little bit of both by way of the Red Line "L." You'll learn about everything from the origins of the city itself, to the origins of foods like "Chicago style pizza," to the 1920s building boom that decorated our famous "Magnificent Mile," and much more. After exploring this lively area, you'll then take a 10-minute "L" ride -- part underground, part above -- to Chinatown, one of Chicago's 200 neighborhoods that most tourists will never experience. In Chinatown, you'll learn about the history of the neighborhood itself, along with its architecture and its foods, discovering secrets along the way (like the church where Al Capone's mother prayed for him to clean up his act). This tour ends in Chinatown, allowing you to explore this neighborhood further on your own.
