Explore the culture, history and tastes of Chicago’s Loop and Pilsen neighborhoods via the Pink Line! Why start at Potbelly? You’ll find out when you get here.
From here, you and our friendly, knowledgable South Side tour guide will explore a hidden museum inside the Federal Reserve Bank and a train station that opened in 1897 before making your way out to Pilsen – a vibrant neighborhood just southwest of the Loop originally settled by Czech immigrants.
In Pilsen, you’ll visit the National Museum of Mexican Art, enjoy beautiful murals and taste authentic Mexican cuisine. Finally, you’ll hop back on the train and wrap it all up at Lagunitas Brewing with a beer tasting.
Following the tour, your guide will be available to assist with directions and your return trip to the Loop.
