Green Line: Prairie District

Get a sense for how Chicago’s wealthiest residents lived around the turn of the century and what remains today. This unique Chicago tour begins with an exploration and coffee at one of the city’s newly-revitalized spaces: The beautiful Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. A short L ride away is the Prairie District, home to many historic sites such as Motor Row, the former Chess Records, the oldest house in the city, the landmark Second Presbyterian Church and the Glessner House. After enjoying some traditional Chicago deep dish pizza and drinks, we’ll board the train back to the Loop. There, we’ll visit the iconic Macy’s (formerly Marshall Field’s) department store and grab a sweet treat to wrap up the tour.
