REGISTRATION AVAILABLE 8/9/19

Chicago for Chicagoans is excited to announce its newest tour, a 2.5-hour walk of the West Lakeview area, with special guest collaborator Walter Kiefer! Walter has lived in Lakeview for the past decade, discovering all the wonderful gems of forgotten history that line its streets.

Beginning at the Addison Red Line Station, the tour will cover the history, architecture, and landmarks of Lakeview's western side -- from atypical historic construction on Alta Vista Terrace, to Wrigley Field's storied past, to tied houses, railroads, and relics of the industry that once dotted the neighborhood. The afternoon will end at a local restaurant, where participants are encouraged to have a meal with the group. 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 $10-20 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! We are a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit that creates inclusive walking tours by & for Chicago residents, designed to represent the histories of all Chicagoans. Donate online fee-free here.
