Did You Know?
The nickname “the Windy City” was actually given to Chicago by a sneering New York Sun columnist during the acrimonious battle to host the World Columbian Exposition in the 1890s and referred to the city's politicos and boosters, not to its climate.
Tour guide Michael Corcoran presents Chicago in the palm
of your hand! Michael weaves stories of the city's architecture, art treasures,
and movie locations together with a history of its colorful past to provide
a unique spin on this modern metropolis.
Michael is certified by and a member of the Chicago Tour-Guide
