About this Chicago, Illinois tour
As we speed from Navy Pier, look east through your wind-tears and you could be looking at an ocean; at 77 miles across and 300 miles north to south, Lake Michigan is as large as Massachusetts, Delaware, and Maryland combined. Look west and you'll see one of the best skylines on Earth.
Ten of the world's tallest buildings are in Chicago. In fact, skyscrapers were born here: Completed in 1885, the 10-story Home Insurance Building was the world's first skyscraper, and used the steel-frame method, a Chicago innovation.
In the U.S., Chicago trails only New York in skyscrapers, with 195 buildings over 400 feet. And five of them are in Chicago's Magnificent Mile district.
At 1,450 feet, the tallest is the Willis Tower, formerly the Sears Tower. Completed in 1974, it's just a bit taller than the nearby 1,389-foot Trump International Hotel and Tower. The Aon Center, John Hancock Center, and other newbies jostle for attention. One thing you won't see is the ill-fated Chicago Spire, proposed in 2005 but abandoned because of financial problems in 2014. Had it been completed, it would have reached 2,000-feet and been the second tallest building in the world.
In 1818, the boundary of the new state of Illinois was adjusted 60 miles north to include the Chicago lakeshore as part of the state's eastern boundary. Without this shift, your trip to Chicago would take place in Wisconsin.
Please make your way to the Seadog Ticket Booth at Navy Pier, 600 E Grand Ave., Chicago, IL 60611Centrally located on Navy Pier's Dock Street across from the 150 foot high Ferris Wheel.
Please check-in at least 20 minutes prior to tour departure time. Tour operates daily from April through October 31st.
