Discover Chicago's Neighborhoods

As a large American city, Chicago is rather unique.

In addition to a strong, vibrant downtown and central business district, Chicago is also home to 77 distinct neighborhoods that vary widely in terms of their residents, businesses, culture, and history.

Linking these neighborhoods is Chicago’s extensive transit system, the “L”, which has 224.1 miles of track and serves more than 600,000 riders daily.

Whether you’re interested in Loop architecture, the colorful street murals of Pilsen or the mansions of the Prairie District, and more, we have a tour for you and the L will take you there.

It’s where we go and how we get there. That’s what makes L Stop Tours a unique tour company.
