    Loop and Millennium Park Tour

    (26)
    Join Free Tours by Foot for the most interesting and informative way to experience Chicago's downtown area called the "The Loop," also known as the Theater District! Defined by the elevated train lines that form a circuit in the heart of the city, the Loop is Chicago's commercial core, home to big names such as Boeing and IBM. But, it's so much more: The Loop contains the largest concentration of skyscrapers, including the tallest in the United States and it is effectively a living architectural museum, with a large range of architectural styles, from Victorian to post-modern. Follow your expert local guide through Millennium Park to see the famous sculpture that everyone calls "The Bean" (even though it's not a bean at all!), marvel at the work of Picasso and Chagall that decorates random street corners, and learn about these many fascinating styles of architecture that the city offers. Pay a visit to Marshal Fields before stopping for a photo opportunity at City Hall and the iconic Sears Tower. Take a selfie at the start of the legendary Route 66 and discover the Chicago Pedway, all while learning the history of how Chicago came to be and then how it did it all again after the Great Fire of 1871. Chicago may be known as The Second City, but on this tour you'll discover exactly what makes it first rate!
