Individual tours. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. Gothic outside, arts and craftsman inside. Tiffany stained glass. Lots of history. The docent was second to none. Don’t miss this.

As a big Pre-Raphaelite fan, my initial interest was the Burne-Jones windows but was intrigued by the thought of the Tiffany windows. I couldn't make an organised tour of the church but got in touch through email and arranged to go one morning. It was...More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park
