Mad about the 1960s? Get in touch with Chicago’s seismic past with a sweeping walk through time!

Journey alongside a local guide and historian, and enjoy fun facts and anecdotes designed to bring the past to life. Video, music, and vintage images help further shade modern-day destinations in black and white, and technicolor.

The infamous Drake Hotel is up first for a peek at a provocative nightlife underscored by the Playboy Club and the influence of Hugh Hefner. Then, it’s on to Rush Street, where class and vice used to dance arm in arm.

A meander among the mansions and gaslights of the Gold Coast are up next, before ending your racy walk at the Pump Room, where Frank Sinatra kept a private booth, and celebrities came to unwind.

Better bring a hanky. You’re going to need something to wipe that brow with.
