3 night Chicago Trip
This summer with the group we plan on taking the exchange students to visit one of the largest and most interesting cities in America... Chicago! Staying in a hotel in Downtown Chicago allows the students to experience the life of Chicago, from tasting the best of Chicago Pizza, exploring the amazing architecture downtown, to catching a Chicago show, it will be an experience to remember!
The group will gain insight in what makes Downtown Chicago great through a boat tour with a guide that will explain the significance and history of the buildings along the river, shop at the famous Magnificent Mile, bike along the shore of Lake Michigan, eat Chicago Pizza at Giordanos, have breakfast at the Corner Bakery, enjoy Live Blues music at the Kingston Mines, and choose between a museum or visit Chinatown.
Hotel Parking Options
The first option for parking will be the Impark Parking Garage that is located right behind Essex Inn ($85/vehicle for 3 nights). The second option will be the LAZ 1 E 8th Garage ($75/vehicle for three nights).
Visit the Willis tower in Downtown Chicago and stand in the Sky Room where it looks like you are floating above the city.
Take a morning tour and listen to the guide explain the amazing history and architecture of the buildings found along the river that runs through Downtown Chicago.
Visit Navy Pier and see the shops and various things they have available.
