Meet your tour guide at Potbelly and enjoy a coffee while you walk through one of Chicago’s earliest skyscrapers. From there, explore a hidden museum inside the Federal Reserve Bank. Next, catch the Pink Line at a renovated L station (opened in 1897) and make your way to Pilsen Chicago neighborhood — a vibrant neighborhood just southwest of the Loop originally settled by Czech immigrants.

Pilsen ranks #10 on TimeOut’s List of 50 Coolest Neighborhoods in the World

Upon arrival in the Pilsen Chicago neighborhood, you’ll enjoy a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine and visit the National Museum of Mexican Art. During the Chicago walking tour, you’ll see beautiful street murals and unique homes.

After that, you’ll hop back on the train to the Loop and wrap the Chicago neighborhood tour up with a drink at one of the oldest restaurants in the city.
