Description

Chicago for Chicagoans dares Chicago winter to scare us off as we bring back one of our favorite neighborhood tours-- a 2.5 hour walk through Rogers Park, featuring special guest collaborator Wendy Bright of Wendy City Tours! Wendy is a tour guide extraordinaire, writer, blogger, and Art Deco aficionado who brings her lifelong love affair with Chicago history full circle by diving with us into the glitz, glamour, and outrageous Prohibition antics of her own home neighborhood.

Beginning at the Morse Red Line stop, the tour will cover Rogers Park's rich history, architecture, and landmarks-- from its earliest beginnings as a village on the city's outskirts, to its flirtations with luxury, elegance, and grand movie palaces, to its modern reputation as one of the most ethnically diverse areas of Chicago's Far North Side-- reported this year to be the city's best neighborhood for quality of life!

The afternoon will end with a meal at Heartland Cafe, a 35-year-old neighborhood landmark known for its laid back vibe & sustainable and vegetarian-friendly menu. Come learn something new about your place in space!

Chicago for Chicagoans happily exists as a "pay-what-you-can" tour service. A suggested tip of $10 per person is always appreciated, but reviewing us on Yelp, liking us on Facebook, spreading the word, and attending future tours tells us how much you love us too!
