Chicago Neighborhood Bus Tours Give Tourists New Options

When it comes to visiting big cities like Chicago, tourists commonly flock to the most well-known areas, like “shopping on North Michigan Avenue or taking in the downtown’s distinguished architecture.”

But a recent MSNBC article points out that, like most big American cities, Chicago has over 70 other neighborhoods with landmarks, shops and restaurants worth seeing.

The Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture is hopeful that visitors to the city will explore these areas, and they are taking measures like adding new guided neighborhood bus tours.

Rather than doing a generic city tour, these busses will take you on a very specific journey, either showing visitors “behind the scenes of microbreweries to learn how craft beer is made” or following the path of the 1871 fire which destroyed much of the city, and highlighting the buildings and architectural features that survived.

These bus tours provide for an experience both exciting and educational, allowing travelers in Chicago to spend their time learning more about what interests them specifically, while spending more time doing more than snapping photos for an hour in front of “The Bean.”

If you’re planning on visiting Chicago, find a bus that is sure to give you a good experience, whether it is a ghost tour or exploring architecture across the decades.
