Чем вы займетесь
Hillary, founder of Inside Chicago Walking Tours, is INCREDIBLY excited to share this experience with you. It combines several of her favorite Chicago things: architecture, music, and dancing! This VERY Chicago-style tour is split into 3 parts: First, we'll check out a couple gorgeous buildings from the 1920s and 1930s, with some interesting details and stories about life in that era. You’ll walk in the footsteps of those high on the potential of the future, before the infamous Crash of ‘29. You’ll understand why the Art Deco style is so timeless — why even for us, it has a stunning beauty that inspires us to this day. We'll go back in time to spaces that evoke thoughts of Metropolis, The Great Gatsby, and even Gotham City (we’ll explain that one…). We will then make our way to a famous mob hangout for drinks & a tour of the space, checking out old, rare photos and newspapers that announce the conviction of Al Capone, the death of Frank Nitti, and the murder of "Big Jim" Colossimo. What many people pass by today as a sports bar & restaurant is actually an old hangout for "The Outfit," the name for Chicago's branch of the Italian mafia. Here, you can peek into old bootlegging tunnels! Lastly, we will end with LIVE MUSIC at the magnificent Drake Hotel, a gorgeous Chicago hotel from the 1920s. Drinks at the Drake are on you, but the music -- and the dancing -- is free!
Hillary & Adam
I started a walking tour business in 2014 because I knew there is nothing better than walking up to and *into* buildings to see their art & architecture up close. In five years of business, my tiny company beat out all competition in Chicago to become #1 on TripAdvisor. My tours are the opposite of the big-box, corporate, scripted tours. My company specializes in unique, engaging, eye-opening experiences of downtown Chicago's architecture, history, and even simply beautiful (and often secret!) views. Besides teaching and guiding, I love helping people find stuff in the city to do on their own as well: live music, food, events, etc. I can't wait to show you around!
