Winter Loop Tour

March 17 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

| $10/$12

IWPA members, non-members and guests are invited to join us as we venture out into the Windy City to explore the Loop during the winter! We will spend half of the time outdoors looking up at skyscrapers and the other half will be spent inside exquisite public buildings and lobbies.

Defined by the elevated train lines that form a circuit in the heart of the city, the Loop is Chicago’s downtown area and commercial core, home to big names such as Boeing and IBM. But, it’s so much more. The Loop contains the largest concentration of skyscrapers, including the tallest in the United States (not counting spires) and it is effectively a living architectural museum, with a large range of architectural styles, from Victorian to post-modern, many with grand interior spaces.

We’ll learn about how the Great Fire of 1871 started, and marvel at the modern city that rose upon the ashes of that disaster. Be sure to bundle up!

We will meet at Inside Block 37 Mall by the Hot Tix booth inside next to the Magnolia Bakery.

Members may reserve their spot for just $10. Non-members are welcome for $12. Click the PayPal link below to purchase your tickets by Thursday, May 14. No day-of sales.
