Guide Description

Tall commercial buildings have been a fixture of the Chicago skyline since the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.  If you're downtown, you can pretty much look up and be sure that you're looking at a building with a pedigree and a story to tell. By no means an exhuastive list, we have put together a selection of some that we think are not to be missed.  From the unusual (Marina City) to the referential (Tribune Tower) to the simply stunning (Jay Pritzger Pavilion), this is a walking tour that will immerse you in history and architecture.

The tour begins by the Chicago River opposite Marina City, on E. Wacker Drive near Wabash.

Stops include:
• Wrigley Building
• Tribune Tower
• Carbide and Carbon Building
• Chicago Cultural Center
• Millennium Park
• Palmer House
• The Rookery Building
• 190 S. LaSalle Street

This tour of the Architectural Gems of Chicago is a professionally developed, self-guided audio walking tour that includes about 35 minutes of material and will take you about 90 minutes to complete – though we hope you take some extra time to enjoy some of the great architectural beauty that Chicago has to offer.
