What you'll do

First we will meet in the heart of downtown Chicago at the heart of an iconic skyscraper, from there we will see beautiful iconic sculptures and places that bring a frame of reference to the downtown Chicago area. We will have brief introductions to the architecture of the city, from the Aqua building, Hancock tower, the Sears (Willis tower), and many others that bring the skyscrapers in Chicago to life. We then will see the unique "Bean" in the Millennium park. Along the way we will visit unique Graffiti area that is well hidden in the downtown area. These marvels of art, that are a few stories high, tell a unique story of what Chicago is. We will see many historical and current references that are art sculptures, and buildings that are world renown. We will take a quick detour into a local coffee shop that has local art spread out through it's walls, that are as unique as they are captivating exploring some more architecture, and street art along the way. We will enter a very unique building that has some historical achievements worldwide, and that tells the unique story of America. We will walk towards another mural that is a few stories high, and then proceed along the beautiful River walk.
