We’ve designed these retreats as a way to creatively explore the city of Chicago with residents who know some secret places and special eateries. We want you to have a wonderful time: renewing & connecting, exploring & eating –- and playing, too!
Lunch at a private club on the 80th floor of the AON building
Walking tour and stories about Millennium Park, The Bean, Buckingham Fountain, and Lake Michigan
Sneak peek inside a lake-front condo with breathtaking views
Dinner at a Speakeasy tapas-style restaurant
Comedy show at The Improvised Shakespeare Company
Twirl on the iconic Navy Pier Ferris Wheel
Water Taxi ride
Lunch on the Riverwalk
Happy hour (first drink on us)!
Stops at many secret spaces & places.
We pre-pay the bold item fees & tips...all this is included in your tour package
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 an umbrella, 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!
