See what’s new, exciting, and decidedly different during a tour covering the city’s major highlights. “City in a Garden,” Chicago’s motto, is much more than a slogan. On this tour, attendees will experience vistas from the extraordinary Millennium Park, the glorious lakefront and Navy Pier, Chicago’s number one tourist attraction. Chicago’s remarkable architecture will also be highlighted as attendees learn how the modern styles evolved and produced the ever increasing panorama of world-class structures. A stop will be made at the Willis Tower Skydeck, formerly known as the Sears Tower. The Skydeck offers spectacular views spanning up to four states, a Chicago experience full of interactive exhibits and…The Ledge, a glass balcony extending four feet outside the 103rd floor of Willis Tower!
