One of the very best ways to get to know a city, whether its your first visit, or your home, is to take advantage of a hop-on hop off tour. Available in most cities nationwide these tours allow you to travel the whole loop, with narration, to learn about the city and orient yourself. Then ride around hopping off and on at your leisure, to explore the places you find most interesting, and spend as much time as you like.
Next time you are in Chicago, book a pass on the Hop on / Hop off Chicago Trolley Tour. Spend about two hours riding all the sights and learning detailed history of the city and fascinating insider tips about the sights you’re visiting. Then you’ll have three days of privilege to hop on and off as you please to delve deeper into the places you most want to see.
The Chicago Trolley Tour includes great sites like Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue Bridge and Block Thirty-Seven, where you can get a free t-shirt at the Explore Store, and view sculptures by Picasso and Miro, as well as get in some shopping in and dining in the heart of the Loop.
With more than a dozen stops included on the tour, you’ll be glad to have three days to see it all. Hop off at The Willis Tower and experience the Skydeck where you can walk The Ledge, a glass balcony more than 1,300 feet over Chicago, and enjoy amazing views in all directions, spanning four states. Grab a meal at the Hard Rock Cafe, shop the Magnificent Mile, see the John Hancock Center, Navy Pier and more.
