During your 75-minute tour, Shoreline’s professional and entertaining guides will tell the dramatic story of Chicago’s rise from the Great Fire of 1871 to become the birthplace of modern American Architecture. Along the route are dozens of buildings by world-famous architects, including Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Helmut Jahn, Adrian Smith and Jeanne Gang.
