Note: Limited seats remain.

On Thursday, October 13, join WILL on a trip up to Chicago to partake of a walking tour of Chicago’s great skyscrapers. Kevin Hinders, U of I Associate Professor of Architecture and member of the Chicago Architecture Foundation, will act as our tour guide as we experience Chicago’s loop on foot.

Our excursion will follow in the footsteps of Geoffrey Baer, host of the television program Chicago’s Loop: A New Walking Tour. It will include Chicago’s most iconic buildings. The experience is $120 per Friend and includes the bus trip to and from Chicago, lunch in Cellars Market – lower level of the historic Chicago Board of Trade building, and the walking tour.

The bus will leave WILL parking lot B-22 at 8:30am on the 13th. Depending on weather conditions and time of travel, we may be able to make a bonus stop before returning home.

Guests should be prepared to walk two miles in rain or shine, including climbing stairs. Register by October 7 by calling 800-898-1065.
