Chicago’s Double-Decker Sightseeing Tour
Ok, ok. So riding around in a huge red bus isn’t far off from stamping TOURIST across your forehead, but that doesn’t mean you should jump on the bandwagon. I mean, c’mon.. you ARE a tourist. And Chicago’s Double-Decker Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour really is one of the best ways to see the city. I’m a local, and I’ve even been on it. Twice. The bus takes you all around downtown Chicago and the Loop, stopping at many of the city’s biggest attractions, museums and sights.

The Magnificent Mile (Shopping!!)
Downtown Theater District
The Art Institute of Chicago
South Loop Museum Campus
John Hancock Center
Willis (Sears) Tower
