You might want to book a reservation in the 60601 zip code area, since this is where the majority of our tour takes place. Here are a few good hotels to check out:
Register with a friend, and not only will you double the fun, you'll receive a $50 discount each!
Pack comfortable clothes and WALKING shoes (if they're new, be sure to break 'em in at home first). Bring a journal to take notes and jot down ideas. Don’t forget warm coat & scarf, water bottle, and a small backpack.
Plus, your guides have unique training – Maripat is a certified life coach who will share mindfulness practices, and Kris is a designer and a volunteer docent at Chicago Architecture Center, who will invite you into her creative perspective. So … you won’t just sight see, you’ll see yourself in new ways!
