See famous outdoor sculptures by such renowned artists as Calder, Chagall, Picasso, Miro and Dubuffet; view splendid new modern architecture; explore LaSalle Street, the financial center; State Street, “that great street”; Millennium Park, and discover three of the world’s five tallest buildings, right in Chicago. The tour will continue with a drive down Michigan Avenue’s Magnificent Mile, rich with shops, parks and gardens. Continuing north along Lake Michigan’s beautiful Outer Drive, gateway to the city’s glamorous Gold Coast.

You haven’t seen Chicago until you’ve seen it from the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) Skydeck! One of the world’s tallest buildings, this 1,454 foot steel structure will afford guests spectacular views of the city from the observation deck located on the 103rd floor. Guests will be given time to take in the views from all directions. The Skydeck is Chicago’s most visited and highest observatory. Interactive displays highlight the character and characters of this great city. The view is amazing! You can see 40 – 50 miles on a clear day. Imagine seeing Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, just by walking around the Skydeck. And there’s no finer view of Chicago architecture. Time permitting; the group will see the Lincoln Park Zoo and Conservatory, sleek lakefront condominiums, famous homes, and architectural highlights. Back along the lake’s southern shores, view majestic Buckingham Fountain, Museum Campus, and colorful yacht marinas. A brief stop will be made at “Planetarium Point”, the perfect spot for picture-takers to capture Chicago’s famous skyline.
