Instead of whizzing by Christmas lights on a bus, come along for a walk in downtown Chicago to fully enjoy the spirit of the holidays! While no one can predict the weather, you won’t get too cold. Your guide will take you into a few warm locations and talk history over a couple of drinks. Your guide will have some inside stories on this holiday lights tour! Hear about how Mayor Richard J. Daley saved the Christmas Parade, and then how his son, Richard M., was almost awarded a stocking of coal for his affront to Christmas and Hanukkah. The holiday tour has some classic experiences, too. You’ll go into the former Marshall Field’s Department Store where Chicago holiday traditions have a rich and long history. Enjoy a drink while you gaze at the giant holiday tree in the historic Walnut Room and discover forgotten stories and make new memories. If you would like to enjoy a couple of drinks on the tour, please bring an additional $21 to cover drinks and server gratuities. This walking tour is not your typical holiday lights tour of Chicago!
